The hole appeared where the oil pan and block meet on both sides. I had to pick up the connecting rods off of the interstate. The hole was big enough on either side to easily put my fist into. Let the good times roll

My condolences go to the old p-stroke.
Though it will never see another mile, it will be remembered.

It looks like the connecting rod snapped, and the remaining piece that was still on the crank shaft punched a hole in the block..
That's usually what happens at least.
