What happened is from doing some aggressive driving, the engine oil leaked out, we can't be sure why, possibly a gasket let loose due to pressure. Engine don't like running without oil, especially as low as 5 qts., so basically you cooked the engine and what you have is a boat anchor and needs replacing. Let this be a learning experience. Sucks you don't have money, car's don't care about that.

You abuse the equipment and it can abuse your wallet. One of life's expensive lessons.
