Where is the car smoking from? IS the car overheating? Engine, exhaust?

Well, I very rarely heard of a trans smoking, but I suspect there was an internal failure, maybe due to a leak contributing to low or no fluid. Transmissions don't like heat and it sounds from your description that it burned up. Nothing you can now except rebuild or replace it. Have the car towed to a reputable tranmission shop.
