Frightening incident when shifting gears

Nissan Versa 2012, 60K miles

A couple days ago something scary happened.

I was parked facing uphill. I started the car and shifted into D. It shifted with a big "clunk" that made the whole car jolt. I took my foot off the brake and stepped on the gas, but nothing happened, the car just rolled backwards. The dashboard confirmed that it was in D, but it would not accelerate. I put it in park and restarted the car. Everything was normal again. Should I worry? Nothing similar has happened since.

Nissan is notorious for CVT transmission problems, but fortunately it's covered for 10 years/120K miles according to this Nissan CVT Warranty Extension.
