Turbo Blast

Hello everyone

I'm driving a Ford Focus 2.0 Tdci and my turbo blew this afternoon. A big black smoke came out of the exhaust and some also filled the car inside. I was not sure if I should drive it afterwards.

I would like to know from those who are knowledgeable if I can still drive the car in this condition whilst sorting out the finances to fix this. Your advices will be greatly appreciated.

Regards
John
