Brake Failure while driving down the crowded streets of Memphis

I was drivining my truck last week and I have been hearing this noise com from the front right tire.. Not thinking anything about it! I was driving and my brake pedal went to the floor and the front brakes would not work so the back ones locked up.. I got and looked up under the front.. Brake fluid everywhere.. the front right rotor locked up and it was destroyed and it busted the seals on the caliper... luckily not a lot of traffic was around and I was able to limp to the Shop!

Had my caliper bust coming home from Tennessee last year. It was not a fun ride. I was just thankful it held off until when it did. The day before we were driving in the mountains for the day and that would have been ugly.

Glad nothing happend worse than the parts breaking.
