Hi there. It sounds like you may have experienced an internal failure of the transmission, rear differential, or the brake system. Check for marks on the pavement for the tires and determine if it was all four or only two of the tires that barked. If it was all four, I would suspect a brake system problem that would affect all four wheels like an abs pump malfunction. If it was only two wheels, determine if it was only the front or rear. If the front, suspect a brake malfunction that would affect both front wheels such as the abs pump or other related component. If the rear, suspect a possible internal transmission or rear differential that has failed.
As you did not notice any kind of growling or howling noise from the rear and that the engine revved without power to the wheels, I would strongly suspect a transmission failure which could be related to the no start condition you currently have as well. I strongly suggest acquiring a qualified technician to perform an inspection to avoid replacing unnecessary parts. YourMechanic has several available technicians that can assist you with a car does not move inspection and a car does not start inspection.
