Hit a road barrier and leaking fluid

I hit a patch of black ice and the truck went sideways hit a metal barrier head on, didnt touch the grille or headlights hood, only the bumper got smashed as did the tow hook. I drove home and it started squirting a clear liquid everywhere, coming from behind the intercooler, the intercooler and radiator look to be ok but what could this fluid be? I'm thinking coolant, needless to say Im hoping this isnt a couple $1000's to fix, a bumper cost like $250, but any ideas what the liquid could be?

Looking for a 6.4 or 6.7 under $40k

Thats a good one. All the fluids have colors. Red,green, etc. Will the fluid run out if the motor is shut off? Only when running? A little more info might help.

It was a clear fluid, didnt smell like diesel and wasnt dark or smell like oil, only leaked when running

^^^^^ I agree.. way off topic! LOL

Maybe I'm just thinking like a dumb Texan, but could it be melted ice? (aka, water.. aka, a clear odorless liquid)
That's what I'm thinking it is.. Because there are no clear, odorless liquids I am aware of..
But whadooIknw

Edit: I reread and it says "squirting".. So I'm waiting to find out what it was.
