Looks like the alternator failed. If the sufficient voltage is missing from the control modules you will experience failures, if you keep trying to start it with low voltage you can permanently damage components. Find a good BMW specialty shop in your area and get it towed there.

Most likely need to replace the alternator and maybe battery, the transmission light is probably on because of low voltage to the modules.
