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.
visually inspect the mesh underneath the exhaust manifold where it bolts on and its a possibility it could've detached there.
