Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was driving home after work, a light came on in
my car said oil pressure low reduce speed to
25mph the vehicle lost power and I was not able to
get off the highway completely due to other
vehicles, I started the vehicle back and drove down
the street for maybe a couple hundred feet the light
came back on, but this time when the engine lost
power, or right befor it shut down something in the
engine blew, just heard a really loud bang. Smoke
came from under the hood, when I popped the
hood there was fluid all over, what could have
broke?

Yikes. Low oil pressure may have been due to not having any oil, forcing the engine to continue running in that condition may have blown it. All you can do now is let a mechanic look it over and suggest repairs or possibly replacement engine.
