Sounds like a faulty turn signal switch. The brake light wire is routed through the turn switch, so it appears the turn switch has gone crazy.

Your brake light switch is stuck or defective and needs replacement. It's located right above brake pedal under the dash. Small plastic switch with a couple of wires coming from it.

Brake light came on

Sounds like you broke a brake line to the rear of the truck. Top off your barke fluid and push the brake pedal several times and look to see where the fluid is dripping from. I am willing to bet the line broke where it goes next to the fuel tank.
