belt popped leaking coolant

So i was driving my 2000 Z3 the other day and the belt that drives alterntor, water pump, power steering and fan popped off. I didn't want to drive it so i let it sit till i could get it towed home. I get it home and look on the flat bed and see a bunch of blue liquid...first reaction, its washer fluid? Smells and feels like coolant but it sure looks like washer fluid. Check the overflow tank, empty. Also the fan clutch appears to be broken. It has about 3 inches of play up but nothing down. I plan to replace the belt and track down that coolant leak, if anyone has any pointers or tips that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
