Question about Ford Expedition
Park it and do not start it. You do have pressure from the fuel pump and the pump should have shut off when you turned off the engine. It sounds like you have more than 1 problem.
You have a broken line or fuel pressure Regulator and depending on the vehicle may have a bad connection on an Injector or even a fuel filter. Most filters are under the vehicle, but you did not indicate the Model or Year of your product so some still have filters under the hood.
If the problem stopped when you turned the vehicle off, then the Relays are alright. If the fuel kept spraying after the Ignition was off, part of it was due to pressure built up from when the pump was on. But if the fuel sprayed for 10 minutes or more, a fuel Relay is stuck on. You are very lucky to avoid a fire.
You need to find the leak, fix the leak, and then clean under the hood with soapy water to wash the oils from the fuel away. You do not want to go up like a torch from residual gas. If you do not know much about vehicles, then have it towed to a Repair facility and ALERT both the tow driver and the Repair shop that you had a fuel spray.
If you have good Insurance coverage on your car, Comprehensive insurance may cover the repair. If the repair is not done properly, the Insurance may have a fire claim so it becomes a case of which is cheaper for the Insurance company. For this situation they may gladly pay for a mechanical repair.
I hope my solution is very helpful to you. Remember to include more details like the vehicle you are driving so we have more to go on.

You really need to have this truck towed to a repair shop. A fuel leak is serious and probably something that a professional should do if you don't have a lot of experience dealing with this kind of repair.
