problem #2

When I attemped to pull out from a stoplight the vehicle wouldn't go anywhere. Almost was rearended by a tractor trailer being that I was trying to move and my foot was not on the brake to engage the brake light.... took a few seconds to realize it wasn't going to move and put my four ways on. This was at an intersection where the speed limit is 45. Vehicle finally engaged but was leaking trans fluid. Got it home in 1st gear and now the car is constantly engaged in drive. When started in park the car lurches forward. The first time I started it after getting it home I almost ran over the person looking under the hood. Odd thing is that there is still fluid in the trans... at add but still there and the leak has stopped. Trans is still acting like it did the day it failed though.
