Truck Bleeding profusly

well heres what happened i was on the free way got off and was waiting at the light, while im sitting there i see some little clouds of white smoke coming from what i belive was the car in front of me but turns out it was my truck, so i drive about 2 miles more to my destination and decide to get out and pop the hood when i do i see the entire engine compartment cover in oil except for the passengers side as i look underneath my truck i notice ive lost about 2-3 quarts of oil and decide it best to shut the truck off, no the bad part as i walk back down the street i was on i noticed a huge oil trail comeing from where i was driving including the u tunr i made a to get to the house, now for the inside oil dripped down the down pipe onto the drive shaft and coted my etire undercarrage but back to the engine, i notice most of the oil seems to be pooled over the drivers side valve cover and the vicinity above it can any tell me if im lucky enough to have just blown a gasket or if i blew my hpop need help asap

Tomorrow morning, fill the engine with oil and clean up all the oil around the valley. Have someone start the truck while you watch to see where it's coming from.

Anything is possible. But that much oil? Sprayed everywhere... smart money is hpop or hpop line (oring).
