The brake light switch rubber bumper most likely fell apart and left an open hole to the brake light switch push pin. This will cause it to go right through and not turn off the brake lights. I recommend seeking a qualified mechanic, such as the one from YourMechanic, to come and test your vehicle's brake lights for you. From there, they will be able to perform the repairs needed to get your brake lights working properly again.
