Interesting day leading to blown 6.4??

so my day begins out at 1 am traveling from bc to alberta to trade my 05 6.0l for a 09 6.4 harley with 49,000k after purchasing the truck at about 2 ab time, i hit the road headed back to bc, but not 5 min from the lot the truck starts to take off reving to 4k+ rpm and accelerating rapidly and blowing white and blue smoke out the tail pipe. the sound of the engine while all this was happening sounded like it was way off timing(like a rough banging noise). i nursed the truck safe spot and parked it and waited 2.5 hours for ford roadside to come pick me up. the dealership said it is a bumed injector and it wont be a big fix i was wondering if anyone on here has any thoughts as to what happened

Sorry about your luck, hope its in and out quickly. Just curious what you paid, I live in Alberta and have an 09 F-350 Harley I was thinking about selling.

Beat me to it Freeky....on a side note, if a truck I just bought from a dealer lasted 5 mins I'd be getting my money back.
