If vehicle is an automatic put vehicle in neutral and try to start if still no start remove battery terminal ends and clean.

check the battery does not need topping up.. sometimes the battery shorts across the plates especially when a heavy current like starter motor is involved. This can also cause misfiring and engine cutting out when braking or cornering.
