door broke

Please look at the attached pictures of our bedroom door being off track. It appears one of the latches may have broke but it's hard to tell. I tried getting it back onto the track but had no success. Is there some secret to fixing these doors when they break?

I would remove the track from the ceiling and let the whole mechanism down after removing the stops on the floor. Keep moving the door to reveal all the track screws.

I hope you don't drive Down the road with this door UN-latched?

This type of breakage is conducive of that.
Now with that said you may have secured it and the strap came loose or broke and allowed door to be free to slam back and forth.
Another thing you may want to consider is adding more bottom door slides.

These are a real pain. Thre should be a pin that slides in the top track, it could have rolled left of right in the track, This pin slides into the metal groove that is mounted on the top of the door, and that white plastic hook in your picture rotates around and clicks around the top pin holding the pin into the metal groove on the door. That click is pretty weak though and it is easy to come loose especially with kids that are not real gentle on doors. I have had to fix mine many times.
