Can't really see it over a computer. My best guess would be the engine bounced sideways and the oil filter got bumped and crushed or a hole got punched in the oil pan. Other possibilities include a damaged hose, and it could be leaking transmission fluid from an inner cv joint that popped out of the transmission. You need someone to actually look under the car to see where the fluid is leaking from.
