Will oil be leaking from your car if your head gaskets are blown like in your driveway?

There are quite a few possibilities when the head gasket blows. In one scenario the exhaust gases will leak into the crankcase causing elevated pressure and the pressurized exhaust gas will take oil vapor out through the main bearing seals since the main bearing seals are not designed to operate under that kind of pressure.
