There was a tech working on the electrical when it happened the hood was up and the F-150 was running. I’m not 100% sure what the cause was.

Overheated, issue that Ford has made a recall for that hadn’t been done before it bit the big one.

...That camshaft runs a vacuum pump that seized due to the heat and snap the camshaft in place, blocking the oil passages to lubricate it. Then it tried to shut off on the customer while they where on the highway. If the motor was able to keep running it would have cooked that other cam as well.
