How would I know if my transmission is blown?

(1999 Ford Escort)
in Detroit, MI on May 03, 2015
As I was on the road, my rpm started going in the red and soon my car wouldn't drive while it was still started, once I pulled over I saw that I had a transition leak and when I took it to the shop I was told that it was because my pipes were rusty and got those replaced. Right after I left the shop, the rpm didn't go to the red but the car made the same loud noise when pressing on the gas and wouldn't move while it was started. My only guess is that the transmission is blown, but I don't anything about cars. (There was enough transmission fluid)

Did the mechanic test drive the car after repair? .. Shop had to fix the leak and bill you for it, that's a no brainer but really should have test driven vehicle to confirm repair!

No they didn't test drive it. Do you think there's a possibility that the transmission is blown?
