What would stop the crank shaft from turning only about a quarter of a revolution?

Replacing camshaft belt, camshaft sensor, timing belt(was missing teeth) car suddenly died but after taking apart the crank wont turn but a quarter turn either way with no belts attached and plugs pulled out. Maybe a little more then quarte turn but timing marks wont line up because it doesnt turn far enough. Also when put together it turns over to a certian point and stops. Savable or buy dynomite?

Pistons hitting valves. Internal damage from the belt. Will require major work and possibly replacing the motor.
