Question: driving about 30 miles an hour and it felt like the front...

I was driving about 30 miles an hour this afternoon and all of a sudden it felt like the front right wheel just stopped turning. s(2004 sienna mini van AWD) Red lights on my dashboard beeping, the care pulled to the right, almost shut down and I couldn't do anything. All of a sudden (this was all about two seconds, it felt like an eternity) I felt / heard what sounded like grinding and something sounds like it caught and the wheel started turning again and I would drive. Now I am scared to get back in my car to even go to the dealership. Any ideas? Thank you
