Default Anyone ever have a Intake Cam bolt snap off while driving????

Last night, I was out driving when my car just died...it turned over but was making an awful sound from the timing belt cover area. The time interval leading upto the engine dying was uneventful and no weird sounds emanted from the engine compartment.

Anyway, after finally getting the car back to my house and pulling off the valve cover and timing cover, the only thing I found wrong was the bolt that holds the passenger side intake cam sprocket to the cam shaft was twisted in half. The cam still spins a full revolution without any unordinary binding, other than the obvious tension caused by the valves opening. Without the cam sprocket in place, the engine turns freely and everything seems to be in order...

So, it looks like I might be about ready to source some new cams and such. I just wanted to see if anyone else has had a similar experience.
