Ouch...sorry to hear this. I don't think being transported would do this, it sounds like there's too much pressure in the oil /engine and this has expelled the dipstick/ oil into the engine bay. I seem to recall reading of other cars doing this on the forum but can't recall why. Watch this space, somebody will remember.
