Hello. If the brakes sounded that bad then chances are that the pad may have come loose and jammed between the brake pad bracket and the rotor. It is also possible that the caliper piston came out of its bore. The brakes will need to be fully inspected to diagnose what occurred. If this is something that you want to have done, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic can come to your home or office to diagnose this.
