Fried starter-NOT another no start post

Let me start like this-
this summer I was coming to a stop and didn't engage the clutch in time and my truck died, wouldn't restart- fried the starter. Two weeks no prob, then hopped in one morning, no start-starter was fried again. I had it fixed under the local starter/alternator shops warranty.
All had been well until tonight. I run 1 mile to the local pizza place shut the truck off get my food start back up and come home, as I shut the truck of it sounds like a chop saw is runnin under the cab. I instantly knew the starter was spinning and was in a frenzy tryin to disconnect my cables before it chewed up the flywheel. It stopped before I could unhook them.
Definitely a metal smell with the smoke and NOT electrical. My hopes are it disnt eat the teeth off the flywheel!
Any ideas what could've caused it?

Sounds like your starter relay stuck closed causing your starter to keep getting power after you turned the key back. I would start by unhooking the cables on the starter and taking a multimeter to that relay and see if its giving power to the starter regardless of key position.
