Default Hellva ride even after changing my underwear i'm shaking

Just happened to me about 4 hrs. ago!!!,
I'm cruising down the 4 lane hwy, in my duelly crewcab comming from Walmart since i had been out of town for two weeks (needed groceries) about 1/4 mile from the turn off to my road at 70 MPH and all of a sudden there's one heck of a bump and the front end jumps up about 3 foot then drops to the ground on the right side. I was running paralell to an S10. the lower ball joint broke and pulled the top one out seperating the wheel, spindle, rotar, and of course no brakes. I'm in the fast lane and the S10 in the slow lane, he pulls over immediately and i'm sliding down the road for about 400/500 ft on the lower control arm. i manage to keep it in my lane and get it off to a turn around safely, but i'm concerned that the wheel may have hit him. about 3 minutes later he drives up and ask if i'm O'K, actually i was but i look in the back seat of his S10 3 dr., there's a 4 or 5 yrs. old little girl in a child seat. He had hit the brakes so hard to avoid the tire and hardware it had almost dislodged the child from the car seat. The child was O'k and he was O'k and so was I.
Believe me i said a mini prayer right then because God was definately watching out for all involved.
All 4 ball joints were less than 2 yrs. old, you just never can know when something will happen.
