There's a good possibility that the engine over heated and that the radiator busted. If it didn't check the coolant reservoir and check to see if there's any in there. When you poor coolant in there and here it pour out onto the ground then you know there's a hole in the radiator and you'll need to get it towed. It also might just be to hot and won't start. Just let it sit cool down and try to get it somewhere someone can look into it further.
