major transmission fluid leak

i have a 97 chrysler sebring jxi convertible as i was driving down the highway, i heard a strange noise (kinda like popcorn kernals bouncing around in a popcorn machine) i drove it for approx 10 more miles until i found a place to pull over. wen i looked under the car, transmission fluid was streaming out. i cant seem to find out exactly where its coming from. does anyone have any suggestions of where the leak is?

Well, if it's streaming out, it should be pretty obvious.... Both half shaft seals. Speed sensor. Any one of outside sensor in transmission. Drain plug. ATF pan seal.
Cracked pan.
Cracked trannie case.
Unfortunately, it's multiple choice.

Trans cooler line(s) rust/rot out with age too. They connect the trans to the radiator.
