Unhappy Diesel Everywhere!!

Hey guys, new to this forum but also new to the Ford world. Have always had Dodges til now. Last Wednesday I traded in my 2011 Dodge 3500 for a 2011 Ford F-350. Both had roughly 50,000 miles on them and are stick. Now comes the interesting part. Tonight I was driving home while on the freeway I got a low fuel pressure light. I kept going as I was almost home and truck seemed to be running fine. Then about 1 mile away from home the CEL came on and the reduced power warning light came on. Then it died and I coasted it onto my street. I got out and diesel was everywhere! fully covering the bottom, the tail gate the paint and absolutely covering the engine bay with pools of fuel every where. It leaked more than a quater tank in 2 miles. I towed it into my driveway and now its sitting. Any ideas on what this could be? I wouldnt think it was the fuel pump because the fuel seemed to have pressure to squirt everywhere. Any ideas/suggestions would be much appreciated. Thank you

check the filter lines under the hood as well as the FW seperator lines. Sounds like they did not get fully locked into place after the last change interval.
