The last thing you want to do is keep driving it. Get it into a shop and have it inspected or the next thing you slide into might be an intersection full of traffic or a train.

There's a problem with the traction control system. The reason it feels like it's stalling is because the computer is reducing engine power to prevent the drive wheel(s) from spinning. You most likely tore a wiring harness out of one of the connections. Most likely at one of the wheels. Inspect the underside of the car carefully and look for wires hanging. HTH. -Jim
