I agree the hand brake has locked on, even though the lever in car is down.
Try this:
Pull up on the interior handbrake lever hard. Then BACK UP hard, hit the brake pedal AND lower the hand brake lever same time. BACKING UP is the keyword here.
The parts may just be 'friction stuck' in the handbrake stuff. and doing this might release the stuck part.
