Control arm was the cause (search for a recall to read more). Axle should be fine, but will need a new boot as well as a cleaning an new grease.

I would also check the tire/fender to make sure no damage was caused. Also check the brake line to make sure it didn't get pulled on and start leaking/rip. Judging by the thread title I'm guessing you were very lucky and just stopped before it happened. Might as well check the other ball joints while your down there to be safe.

When I replaced my axle boot most parts stores had the wrong part number listed. I believe it needs to have three semi circles to seal on the axle cup, parts store ones did have any semi circles. You will understand what I'm talking about when you remove the old one.
