If you found the power steering fluid all over, I suspect you may have a power steering pump locked up.
I had something similar happen with a 99 Cougar. The A/C bearing locked up when I shut it off to fill up at a gas station. When I tried to start it, it would turn over but would not start. I kept trying but the battery seemed to be losing charge. I called AAA and they jumped the battery. While I was cranking the AAA guy told me the serpentine belt was not turning. I was shocked but that is when I discovered the A/C was locked. We towed it to a repair shop and installed a shorter belt to by-passed the A/C and the car started right up. That gave me time to get it to a proper place for A/C repair.
You could try taking the serpentine belt off to see if you can turn the engine over. Then try to turn the power steering pulley by hand to see if it is locked up.
If that fluid all over the place is power steering fluid, it should not cause damage to the engine. If it is motor oil you may have a very serious problem with the engine.
