Question: What can driving on a flat tire due to our Jeep?

My husband let his friend use our Jeep while his car gets fixed. Well his friend has been driving it on a completely flat tire for I don't know how long. Well the tire is ruined now. What else can it hurt? It's the back passenger tire. It's a rear wheel drive with 4 wheel drive. Can the 4 wheel drive get hurt due to that?
