What happens when the radiator hose bursts on a 99 Honda Accord?

If it burst because it was defective or just worn out and you did not continue to drive the engine until it overheated then no damage was done. However, if it burst because the engine overheated then you may have blown the head gasket, and you should have it looked at by a professional mechanic. Driving a car with a blown head gasket will do serious damage to the engine.
