would the speed sensors be responsible for the abs and brake lights to be on

No it wouldn't but I'd get the brake system checked out before it unexpectedly go's out on you while your driving.
take your automobile down to your local shop and the technician should be able to diagnose the problem with the malfunctioning speed sensor
