My guess is that the clamp wasn't tightly secured enough and vibration of your engine caused it to ride up. Once off the radiator fitting, it could easily slide off. Now driving even ten feet can be an issue if it was the line flowing to your engine. If your engine didn't seise up or loose all power, your engine could be fine. I had that happen on a old Lumina I had. If its still under warranty and you never had a radiator flush. My advise to you is to call your dealer and see what they can do first. Make sure you don't mention driving it once the hose line broke free
