Just Ran over a huge Rock! **hole in oil pan**

So I was on my way home and tried to dodge a huge rock left in the middle of a 4 lane highway. I was traveling at about 70 mph, going for about 3 miles before exiting off the highway to my apt, drove another half a mile.

While driving and a mile a away from home, I heard a baffling sound like blown muffler, while I was exiting off, my oil light came on, thats when I knew I put a hole in my oil pan. When I parked my car, there was still a large amount of oil dripping out of my oil pan.

Whats the worst that can happend??

I'm freakn worried now!!!!!!
