broke the serpintine belt lost it on hwy and the

The single belt is the serpentine belt and drives all your pulleys/accessories. Sometimes the belts wear and snap, other times, the pulleys loosen or freeze, or you can have a faulty belt tensioner that can throw the belt off or wrap around the pulleys in your case. I don't think you lost your belt on the highway, maybe a part of it, the other part is wrapped around the pulleys.

Ok, Thank you
