Angry Got a flat tire and more

I was driving home then I hear sounds under my car like something had hit it. Good thing there was traffic otherwise I wouldn't be here writing this. Later I found out by the tolls by my house that I had a flat. And of all the times people go fast before the GSP tolls it had to be today, but that's another story.

Anyway to make a long story short, I changed the tire and when I drove off it was hard to accelerate and I heard a metal grinding for a quick sec, now my Brake light is on and my car feels sluggish. I was driving on a completely flat tire for maybe 75-100 ft cause bastards today finally decided to drive fast into the tolls and wouldn't let me pull over, oh the irony.(I usually honk at people that jam on the brakes before the tolls are in sight and those that stop in EZ Pass) Also my car has a very strong burning smell coming from the brakes, I assume, a strong smell coming from the car period smells.

Sounds to me like your brakes are jammed somehow. Probably not all of them either. Does the car pull in one direction?

I'd get it to a mechanic ASAP before the damage is amplified ...
