Our daughter had a similar experience as she was heading to St. Louis for student teaching. She stopped for gas and a break, and when she got back in to go she noticed red fluid all over the ground. She called me. Jo Ann and I both drove to where she was. She took one car in for student teaching, and I took her car back to Rolla, where our son was, right by the dealership. The next day he took the car in, and in short order I got a phone call. The car was fixed, but we traded it for another one. Daughter kept my car. Fortunately for her, the brake line broke while sitting still. Yes, I drove the car (slowly) with only rear brakes working.
