Water pump failure, internal damage?

hey fellas,

I was driving home from work and I'm guessing the water pump bearing failed causing it and the fan to explode into the rad. Damage includes all pulleys,timing belt slipped off,balancer,radiator and the obvious of course. My question is would there be any internal damage at all, I'm guessing there would be chunks of metal from the pump where the pump is on the block.The car ran for another 10 meters as I was mid corner and to get the the side of the road to avoid traffic. My concerns are for the internals versus the list above.
