    Once I accidently threw my blazer in park while I was coasting about 10 mph. It broke the park lever in the transmission. Made the same clicking sound you describe.
    I had a tranny shop fix it pretty easily.

    Yup, definitely sounds like parking pawl has broken or the tension spring has gone away. You can inspect it and fix or replace it by dropping the transmission pan. The function is pretty straight forward and you can watch the operation if you disconnect the shift linkage and move the lever on the side of the tranny back and forth. You will see the rod pull the pawl in and out of a hole in the trans case.
