Why would one tire spin uncontrollably?

You need to go to a brake specialist. It sounds like a pinched brake line. For the tire spinning ... what are the road conditions? Maybe your other axle isn't turning, or is broken somewhere. Or out of the tranny. you may need a new bearing. if that is so you could be driving and the tire could come right off. go to an auto shop and get it looked at. Also, consider having your foot checked for excessive weight.

yes if you have an open differential

Jack up the which ever end is in question to get the tires off the ground. Put the transmission in neutral and spin one of the tires by hand. If the opposite tire spins in the same direction, you have a limited slip differential. If the opposite tire spins in the opposite direction, you have an open rear end. just pull the automobile off to the side of the road with one rear tire in the grass or mud and the other tire still on the road. now mash the gas and spin the tires if it's a open rear end then the tire in the grass or mud will spin only. if it's a limited slip it won't spin at all.

that means that you have power to both tires in the back. this is really important if one tire get stuck in lets say mud and one tire isnt. both tires will spin out independently so you will get more traction and get yourself out instead of just one tire peeling out in the mud
