new 125cc youth ATV wont' start after being laid down

brand new 125cc youth atv. ran great and started great. owned it maybe a week and then my wife and son laid it down in the driveway (not a rollover, just one of those panicked moments right, left toppled on its side). everyone was mostly ok. i ran up and the atv was not running, i stood it back up on its tires and about 15 minutes later i tried to start it and all i got was a click. i left it overnight charging and the same thing the next day. i tried to jump it with car battery, same thing. i checked all the safety buttons, all the wires and made sure everything was firmly connected. i then replaced the solenoid, same thing. it clicks but nothing cranks.

if its not the battery and not the solenoid then it has to be the starter? i can get it to make different clicking/grinding noises by tapping on the starter while trying to fire it up. below is a video of the noise (new solenoid is just dangling because i just attached it). no way the engine seized from being tipped on its side while running right?

for anyone coming back to this thread, new starter fixed the problem.

the broken starter was seized, i couldn't get it to turn at all before removing it.
