can a bad injector do this?

Can one or more bad injectors dump so much fuel into the cylinder to water down the engine oil and after sitting overnight fill the combustion chamber with enough fuel to hydrualic the motor? My oil level is about an inch an a quarter too full now, smells of diesel, and the engine cranked a few times and locked up.If this is the case, taking glow plugs out,cranking motor over should blow fuel out and show me which injector is bad, correct? And does the starter have enough torque to bend rods, pop heads? I know I'm screwed, just trying to figure out how much.

To answer the second part of your question, yes you can bend rods,valves,push rods etc. Take out your glow plugs and slowly just bump over the motor to push the fuel out.
It will relieve the pressure and show you which one is damaged. Do this in little spurts give it time to clear the fuel out, that glow plug hole is kinda small.

also check your coolant level and make sure its not low or empty, an blown egr cooler can cause a hydrolocked engine as well.

A leaking ICP can allow fuel to get in the crankcase also.
