Can I drive car with "Low Coolant" light on? on 1999 Buick Century

Lite comes on after driving 1/4 mile. Now I'm afraid to drive it. 1) can I drive as is for about 3 miles to mechanic? 2) OR should I just have it towed to mechanic? 3) OR should I have tow truck fill it with antifreeze & then drive it to mechanic myself? Thanks for help.
