This is an interference motor if the belt snapped while driving theres a good chance you bent valves.You need to do a cylinder leak down test and compression test to make sure.

The Timing Belt Broke at An Idle. I need to know if I should fix it or not
Expert:  HondaPlatinum replied 7 years ago.
Well most of the time it will bend a valve .But I had mine break at idle and got lucky no bent valves.I would not replace the belt until you know there are no bent valves by having the cylinder leak down test or compression test done.
