Liberty 6-cyl

I was driving about 40 mph. There was a red light and some preceding cars were stopped and others were slowing down. The brakes failed to respond even after stomping on it a of couple times. The brakes only depressed down a little bit but not fully (seemed like depressing brake pedal when ignition is turned off). The vehicle slowed down to about 30 mph, but did not come to a complete stop and crashed into the rear end of vehicle in front. Airbag deployed and caused minor cuts and bruises to the face.

After sitting at a red light, I attempted to pull off from the stop, the ABS light and the traction control light came on and the rear brakes locked up. I was a mile from home, I put the vehicle in four wheel drive in order to get it to move. I drove one mile to my home and parked, I could smell the brakes. I let the vehicle sit for approximately one hour, tried to drive it and it operated as if nothing had happened. I drove the vehicle again the next day with no problems.
