Once you start to move it the lights will most likely come back on, the system went into low power or limp in mode, it should allow you to get it to the shop and have the system checked out, sometimes sensors get damaged by junk on the roadways or connection failures due to a bad seal, you shop should be able to sort it out cause the computer stored the code when the light started flashing.

tennisshoes is right, as always, but there is nothing wrong with your VSC, Whenever a DTC is triggered in the drive train the ECU automatically disables the VSC so no non-driver control is applied , brake or power, to any wheels.. which is what VSC does
