It might be that the throwout bearing has worn the pressure plate fingers so thin that they fold instead of depressing the pressure plate.
And it could also be that one of the four springs in clutch disc has come loose and get lodged between the flywheel bolts and disc.
If the clutch still have some bite, you might be able to put it in first gear with engine off and start up the car to drive but it is a difficult way to do it and should only be used in an emergency situation since it takes a toll on the motor mounts.
