Default Water Pouring out of Exhaust?

My wife was recently driving our camaro when the radiator hose blew on her. She said she heard a sort of crack or bang and then the car lost power. I looked at it today and the obviouse brake in the hose was there. I replaced it and filled it back up. I tried to start the car with it just cranking over and over. I noticed after jacking the *** end up that radiator fluid was coming out of the exhaust. Someone help! Any ideas to what causes this?
