could be a bad alternator, check to see if the car could stay running after removing one of the battery poles, if it doesn't run then it might be a bad alternator.
I got the same problem yesterday and the mechanic changed a part called " the neutral safety switch" and cost me about $180 with labor. They came to my rescue by jump starting the van from the starter. If you really want to drive it to the repair shop you could try that. Turn ON ignition, put on PARK, let someone jump on the brake pedal, starter is located underneath the van, and XXXX. (do it at your own risk.... but they did it infront of my eyes) hope that helps you.
