The smoke that you’re seeing is evaporated steam caused by an overheating situation. This could be caused by several mechanical issues going on inside your car such as a coolant leak, an obstruction in the coolant lines (like an air bubble or debris), a broken thermostat or water pump issue. If the overflow tank was empty, then its likely that your coolant level was very low or that you might have a leak.
My best advice would be to contact a local ASE certified, such as one from YourMechanic, who might start with a radiator flush and diagnose any other issues that are causing the overheating situation.
