When you say that the oil level was low, do you mean right off the dipstick, or low on the dipstick?
If the motor was running when you shut down, it will not have siezed.
I don't think the starter cooked. The engine is likely to have been in flames before that happened.
Check the wire to the starter solenoid. It may be loose or have fallen off.
