Stuck Clutch pedal

I could'nt find anything in the search on this exact issue...so here it is...
I was driving on the freeway when the person in front of me decided it would be a good time to park...right in the road, I had to slam on the brakes the Jeep hopped and slid to a stop when I went to push the clutch in to shift it was stiff and would'nt push in...any thoughts on what this could be? before I start tearing stuff apart...could the linkage have come loose or bound up?

I looked real fast on the side of the road, did'nt see anything that jumped out at me...I had a friend tow it to Flagstaff for me (it was closest) had to get back to Phoenix to go to work the next morning, so I really hav'nt had time to look real good yet, was just trying to get some ideas of where to even start when I do get back up to Flagstaff to bring it down to Phoenix...

I know it's been awhile...but I wanted to post the results of what we found, I guess the "fork" got bent...so I had the whole clutch replaced figured why not if it's being worked on anyway and there are a lot of parts that have a fair share of wear (it is a 79) and most parts look to be original...lol so all is well clutch works great...now on to the next fix/upgrade.
