Sounds not only like the transmission is going out, it has. Should have checked the fluid level before the damage.

Unless your emergency brake is on.

It could be something like a solenoid or could be something has broke inside the transmission. Youll have to get it looked at. Most places will probably tell you that you just need a transmission instead of taking things apart and diagnosing it which is time consuming and can be expensive just to see what is wrong. Check the fluid level and condition.
