Vehicle shut down while driving

After normal startup this morning, less than one mile into a drive, all of a sudden I got warnings: "Automatic braking disabled/front motor disabled/unable to drive". Stopped (no choice). Both screens working, but car would not move. Tried soft reboot - no help. Contacted roadside service. Promptly received message from Mariel - was asked to disconnect all USB items and try rebooting again. After reboot, same warnings and car wouldn't budge. Mariel asked for more information to set up a tow. Asked if I could try a hard restart. I was asked to adjust the tire size, which would result in another reboot. I changed size from 20" to 19", and reboot occurred. FIXED PROBLEMS, after which car drove normally with no warnings or anomalies on display. I have no idea what caused the problems - I must admit this is the first time in 7K+ miles I have had a driving problem. Has anyone experienced such a problem?
