driver side wheel won't turn while in drive

On my 97 ford escort the drivers side wheel locks up when put into drive. when put into reverse it rolls, but when put back into drives its stops and you have to go between drive and reverse two or three times before it will finally start going forward. Is there anything I should be checking

Some more information as to how this came about whould be helpful. It could be a brake caliper locking up, a bad rotor, a CV shaft, a transmission problem, etc.

Any symptoms leading up to the problem would be helpful. Were there any unusual noises or feelings just before this happened? Did it progressively get worse or happen all of a sudden?

You may simply see what is wrong by taking the wheel off depending on what it is.
