What do you think the problem is with my car? on 2005 Ford Focus

I was stopped at a red light and when the light turned green I stepped on the accelerator and it only got to half way through the intersection when it felt like something "dropped". The engine remained on and the car would not move in any gear (including reverse). The check engine light did not come on and there was no other noises or anything.
