Sounds like you lost brake pressure, check for brake fluid leaks at the master and all the lines, hoses and calipers. The ABS light is coming on because the brakes aren't working properly. And the combination of the two lights being on tells me the system has lost pressure. Check the fluid level in the master cylinder if the fluid is up and there are no leaks, its possible there is a problem with the master cylinder. I would not drive the vehicle until you fix this problem.
