engine starts then sputters n dies

The other day i drove my truck over 60 miles to work on the hyway...left the lights on so got a jump, and went to lunch. It ran fine on the lunch run. About 4 hrs later ( the temperature had dropped significantly) i began my journey home. About 10 mins later while still on city roads it sputtered and check engine light came on. It drove okay for a few mins but then wanted to stall whenever i came to a light. I got on the hyway then it began sputtering intermittently with the engine light going off for a few seconds then back on...then. i couldnt get it to go over 40 mph. I finally nursed it to the next exit and towed it home. When i looked under hood i noticed the upper radiator was rock hard??? Help please
