o no bearings, clutch parts and was that a.....o sh**

yup so i was on the way home and all of a sudden the clutch would not depress, then it would slowly i felt more and more of a vibration through the pedal then in the car, then the clutch would deprees but not come back up or stick had to reach behind it and pull it up with my foot, then a grinding noise was evident from the tranny area then we heard things falling out and bouncing...........bearings
and to top it off clouds of smoke come out from the bottom of the car and it went real real slow low idle low power but i was so so close to home so i pushed it a lil more and finaly i could not even get it to clutch out into the next gear i gave up and called a tow truck. less than a mile in towing and a pickup charge at $53 total
now when i look in the clutch housing in the space for the clutch dust to fall out i can see 2 lil bearings ready to fall out and the car is covered with a smell like burning ruber.
i know the clutch is gone but what else is gone, piliot bearing? throughout bearing? ....
