Either the clutch has failed or the drivetrain is bad or CV shaft is dislodged/bad.

For the clutch to fail, it should have shown signs of slipping prior to it giving way.

If that is the case, it miight be the clutch that is bad. I would suggest checking the driveaxles first. They are easier to do and mostly visible.
