That's interesting. The language is funny. The usual and traditional use of the term lucid dream
is to convey that you knew were dreaming
while you were dreaming. So, the answer to your question is no. You didn't know you were dreaming, so you weren't lucid dreaming.
Of course, many people are interested in lucid dreaming because they think it will give them control over their dreams. It might, but not necessarily.
Conversely, it is possible to have control over dream action without acquiring lucidity, as you report.
In fact, your dream falls into an important category of non-lucid controlled dream: one that features a spiritual transformation which confers power.
Yes, death counts as a spiritual transformation, and it is a "dream death," that is, "you" continue on very nicely after the transformation.
I have a question for you. When you say,
... someone told me I had hit my head and died and I was free to do whatever I wanted.
Could you describe who told you?
You may also wish to consider writing out all those details which you summarize here as the dream going on and on. You may be thinking about this
dream for a long time to come, and will appreciate having the fresh notes for reference.
Finally, you may want to search "big dream" jung
to see whether Jung's concept of "Big Dream" feels right to you as a label for this dream
