Did you still have throttle on? If so, then yes, that's the problem. A stalled electric motor draws an insane amount of current and will fry an esc that doesn't have good thermal protection.
Or, in the crash did the esc break? It could have shorted against something.
Or, did a winding in the motor short out in the crash. That too will cause it to draw a ton of current.

The folding prop broke instantly but I'm sure as you say it pulled a lot of current momentarily.
There was no other damage as it was quite a mild crash, I was pretty shocked to see smoke though. Did you here the "pop" ? it shook the plane.
I can see how folk can easily lose their planes now
