U-joint failed and took out the drive shaft. If you are concerned about the differential take off the cover, drain the lubricant and check it.

You should've felt a vibration way before it snapped. Universal joint slowly go bad and it starts to vibrate specially at speeds. You'll need to buy another driveshaft. If you buy a used one, replace universal joints before installing it
