Prius v 4-cyl

There was a load bang, which I thought came from the tires, I realized it wasn't the tires but smoke coming out from the engine. I opened the hood of the car there was smoke and odor coming from the engine. I than went back to the vehicle and turned off the engine and started to started it again. The smoke stopped and I turned it back on, everything looked normal so I started to drive. After 5 miles of driving the engine light came back on for the first time since I bought the car. I pulled over to a gas station thinking it was a leak of water. I checked the everything I had enough water but decide to but more anyways. The engine light was still on, I decided to drive it home so I can dealer tomorrow, but while driving home the car turned itself off. I couldn't started it back on.
