First, have you checked under the vehicle to see where the leak is coming from? If the oil ran straight out, it sounds like the drain plug fell out. If you had to start it to cause it to leak, it could be a loose oil filter.
Check the drain plug at the bottom of the oil pan. Something tells me it wasn't tightened at the last oil change and fell out.
Let me know what you find.
