Hi there. Check the brakes and see if they are locked on the driver side. If the brakes are free, then raise up the vehicle and try to move the wheel by hand. If the wheel is lock up, then the wheel bearing could be frozen and locked up. If the wheel bearing is good but the wheel still will not move, then the transmission could have burned up the making the wheel lock. If you need further assistance with your driver front wheel being locked up, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
