Default Wheel bearing broke while driving down the highway

well... I was headed up to manning park to go snowboarding around 3. I took a wrong turn, went 70kms in the wrong direction just before this problems started to arise. turned around, and my truck started vibrating,squeeling. started driving back at 70k/h made it to chillowack and parked. I took the tire off and could move the rotor and caliper up n down side to side. Can't believe I wasnt looking for my tire somewhere on the side of the road. got home at 10pm.
dunno if this is the right area to post this, but im kinda at a loss for words now, crazy day.
Its getting towed to my house tomorow.

I would have dropped some fruit in my loom. You're lucky it didn't fall off.

Inner and outer bearings plus new seals. Also make sure that broken bearing didn't eat up the rotor.

No, the bearings are metal. The bearing cage is plastic.

Just change the rotor too.
