Unhappy timing belt broke while driving..on a 92 stock EG

anyone has this experience??
did your valve bend????

i was driving around [email protected] 3000rpm.
how many chance my valve would get bent??
i searched on google...some ppl said..dozen of honda car's valve woudn't get bent when the TB broke..
i just don't want to get ripped off from a mechanician if my valve is still good...and they lied..and have it fixed for another few hundred bucks!!~

so pls give some advise!thx!!

i just tried to start the car again for 2 times..and like..3-5 sec for each try~and got towed to my machanic shop..
then the machanican told me..should be the timing belt broke..and he has to check if the valve bent or not....
