diesel turbo failure

Hi all!
My wifes volvo c30 just had what apparently is a turbo failure. First noticed the white smoke on back, revs got higher and higher, more and more smoke, stopped the car, removed ignition key, run out as fast as we could, engine stlll was burning it's own oil for a couple of minutes or more until it stopped...
Still have not the garage feedback, as they will only take a look at it tomorrow.
Just worried on how much damage could it have done to the engine...

Similar thread just popped up in the 147, 156, GT lounge.. User had a diesel runaway in the JTDm GT... Their engine is running again, but without a nice expensive strip down and rebuild you just won't know what damage might have been done by running low/out of oil at high revs etc.. at which point it might just be cheaper and easier to replace the engine...

Minimum damage is a knackered turbo... Worst case scenario it's taken out the turbo, engine, and a load of the ancillary equipment too...

Good luck!
