The road was icy, and while going around a corner I started to slide. With my wheel turn all the way to the left, my right tire struck a small mound of frozen gravel, causing me to narrowly avoid crashing into a tree. My rear break line is broken. I have the part to fix it, but haven't. I switched into 4 - wheel drive to try and help me to get some more traction to slowdown and miss more trees in the way I was directed after hitting the mound of gravel.

It sounds to me that you may have bent the rim when you hit the right tire. Have the vehicle put on a jack and spin the tire to see if rim and hub is bent. Have the bent part replaced as needed. If you need a mechanic to repair the brake line and check to see what is bent then have one like one from YourMechanic come to you and do it for you.
