Lack of lubrication can definitely result in a "thrown rod bearing." Bearings are cooled by oil flow, so lack of oil can result in bearing overheating and failure. The first thing I would do is add oil to the engine and see if it turns over and runs without abnormal noises. If it doesn't turn over, or the engine knocks, it's likely that severe engine damage has occurred. I suggest having a trained mechanic look at your vehicle's rods and inspect your oil problem to see what can be done.
