Rear drivers side making a grinding sound..

(1999 Ford Expedition)
in Pensacola, FL on August 22, 2015
I backed over my sons tricycle tonight and afterwards when I drive forward or reverse there's a screeching metal grinding sound. It almost sounds like the brakes locked up or something is stuck but brakes look fine. A hose came lose but it didn't seem to go anywhere.. I put it back on.. Gassed it forward and back and it seemed to loosen up but went right back to doing the same thing.

We promptly removed the tricycle.. Lol
Upon further inspection in the day light my husband was able to see it had bent something up around the middle of the truck against the drive shaft.. Bent it back and changed the rear differential fluid while he was under there and the truck's running great again.. Thank you..
