that dosent sound like a starter if it was grinding while you were driving. more details on the sound and location would be great.

check all the belts.
make sure they are tiiiiiiiiite!!!! <LMAO
Does it happen at a specific time? Like maybe when you turn the A/C on or only when you're highway driving (aside from the morning startup). Best guess with the info you've given us is what Kane said - one of your three belts are loose. Tight is good. Loose isn't fun. Check into that ASAP b/c if one of them is loose it could *potentially* (depending on how loose it is) slip off its pulley while you're driving. No bueno.

still sounds like a starter problem. could be a short somewhere keeping the starter from disengaging during start up...and randomly engaging during driving. check the starter signal wire (small wire on starter). get a multimeter. turnkey, and release. see if voltage drops upon releasing key. if voltage remains for a second then you have a cross-short somewhere. otherwise I'd say just a sticky starter...replace it either way cause it's going to kill your flywheel...
