My car overheated, when I stopped I saw coolant leaking underneath the radiator on the driver side. I let the engine cool and added water and it was dripping from the same spot.
Do you

Sounds like some part of the cooling system cracked when the car overheated. Likely the radiator itself. You'll want to do a cooling system pressure test. See this article: https://www.2carpros.com/articles/radiator-pressure-test. The toolkit needed can be borrowed at your local auto parts shop with a deposit instead of buying it. Let us know.
