the best thing to do it take the brakes apart and see if you can find anything binding. could be a caliper piston or stuck cables for e brake, etc. wasnt such a good idea to drive it around even if you manage to get the wheel to start spinning you would have created more problems liek fried brakes.

Sounds like a stuck brake caliper piston, take it apart and rebuild it, or replace it with a new or rebuilt unit. From my experience Toyota are known for having seized calipers
