A broken hose is leaking coolant.
This is common as vehicles get older. Rubber components like belts and hoses have a 4-6 year life span. If the hoses in your vehicle are the original it might be time to change them all. This is something that I suggest be done before driving the vehicle to avoid overheating. Overheating can have secondary damages that can make repair more costly. A mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, can perform a pressure test and determine which hose is leaking and replace the radiator hose if needed. If you have overheated the vehicle, mention this to the mechanic so that they can check for any secondary damage as well.
