Bad luck with timing belt on 1998 V70 XC

With the new axle installed, I thought it would be smooth sailing for a while. I was mistaken. The car ran fine for another couple weeks until I drove it to my hometown to do some work for my dad. While driving it around town, the engine just shut off. Luckily, I was able to steer it onto a side street before it rolled to a stop. When I tried restarting the car, the engine would turn but wouldn’t start. So I started rooting around in the engine compartment and noticed something very wrong on the side of the engine. The timing belt had slipped off its pulley and sawed its way completely through the timing belt cover.
