didnt you by any chance hit a pothole or bump at that time?

make sure collision/inertia switch isnt tripped and fuel pump is working.
that's the soft whine or buzz you would hear for two seconds at key-on

then check for spark.

Does the engine-cranking sound different, now? you know...r-r-r-r-r-r-r
instead of -r-r-r, r-r-r-, r-r-r
