Broken strut

I was telling my friend about strange sounds when I go over bumps and how the ride is all of the sudden pumpy and when I go over bumps it feels like my front driver side wheel goes over the bump before my front passenger side window. So he said that my strut is broken so if this is true what could happen if I drive it he told me that the wheel alignment will be messed up and that was about it and then he said something else that could happen but I was leaving his car when he said it and I never herd really what he said. So I was just wondering what could happen if I drive with a broken strut. This is on a 1997 honda cr-v

You mentioned that the bumps when you go over them seem to have one wheel going over before the other. You have loose suspension and there is every possibility that the wheel assembly could come off. Stop driving the car. Fix it or park it.
