why did my s-10 start sounding like muffler was detached? on 1998 Chevrolet S10

I was driving 20 mph when suddenly vehicle started sounding like muffler came detached. Very loud and coming from right under engine block area. I cant tell what or exactly where problem is but its too loud to drive.

Broken/defective exhaust system componet *in front of the muffler* that will have to be seen to determine what needs to be fixed! .. Muffler shop is the place to take it.

get an insp at a muffler shop
visually inspect the mesh underneath the exhaust manifold where it bolts on and its a possibility it could've detached there.
