It's likely the engine is toast. The oil pressure light never came on? It might have gotten you home but once it cooled, it was all over.

It ran out of oil. Probably wiped the rod and main bearings and scored the crank and the cylinder walls and rings. Depending on the type of lifters may have scored up the cam lobes as well.

If you can get it to crank, do a compression test.

Generally, when a hot engine stops running from lack of oil you're looking at a rebuild / replacement. You'll have to decide if its worth it.

What he said.. unless the battery died also.

its like a human without blood... dead. (bleed out) metal on metal.. grinding and grinding.

even "IF" you can get it started.. its damaged.

I had two vehicles lose oil. One I got a hole in the pan and didn't know car started knocking. Fixed the pan filled it up it went for another 60K just fine till I traded it in. Same thing happened with a work truck. Employee ran it dry knocking, mechanic said engine blown. I filled it up and that one went another 100K no problems no noise.
It's not always blown if you run our of oil.
