well, it is not a major problem, you would basicly get contaminants into the combustion chamber.(oil,Antifreeze, blue smoke means oil burning, white smoke is burning antifreeze/coolant.) the problem comes when too much antifreeze gets in the combustion chamber and your engine locks up(hydrolock) it is not a pleasant thing to deal with. there are other problems that may come with this ,i would not recomend using the vehicle unless you really need to.

Immediately stop and do not drive the car any longer. Have it towed to your local mechanic and find out why it overheated. Overheating will destroy an engine and one cause is a blown head gasket.
