For the record, an engine will run for quite awhile with little to no oil pressure, granted it will make a lot of noise and gradually lose power until it shuts down, but it will not create the catastrophic event you are describing.

But then again, that might be a bit too much for you to comprehend.
Dude, instead of going on personal attacks contribute something useful. I had an engine seize on me in an Isuzu Trooper. Rear wheels (was in 2wd at the time) locked up within seconds. It wasn't high speed situation and it was on a dirt road, so on asphalt (more traction) it could have look different, still was quite unpleasant experience.
