Almost sounds like multiple problem. Maybe some more info will help others "diagnose" a possibility.
1. What RPMs were you shifting at?
2. When you went from 2nd to 3rd, what did the engine do (did it just drop down to idle?)
3. When you pulled over, did the engine idle fine?
4. After you shut the engine off, and tried starting it again, did it click or what exactly happened?
5. What do u mean the the clutch and brake pedal locked up? After you turn the engine off it is normal for the brake pedal to be very stiff from built up pressure, but the clutch should push freely.
It almosts seems like a clutch problem, I mean the car will not start unless the clutch is pressed in, you will not be able to put the car in gear with out the clutch (unless you are familiar with it). So by what you say, thats would be my guess.

The brake is stiff because the car is off and the brakes are 'pumped' for lack of a better word.
It almost sounds like you've got a problem with the linkage or the throw out bearing. It's definatly not disengaging, which is why the car won't start. I had a similar problem with an old VW, but it was a mechanical clutch that I could just adjust until I found a sweet spot.
Really the only thing I can imagine is that your disk just grenaded and that's why you can't get it to move. Basically, the disk (which looks like a record) shattered, and instead of having a .25" disc, you have a 1" wide pile of crap in the bottom of that space.
That would actually be on of the better scenario's since they would just replace the disc and resurface some stuff. Easy fix. Anything else could mean some serious down time.
