Hi there. There are several issues that could cause this issue, ranging from damage to the steering column or power steering pump. If your steering wheel itself has turned and is no longer straight when tires are squared, it’s more than likely you have a steering column failure. I would recommend having a professional mobile mechanic come to your location and complete a steering wheel inspection as soon a possible as this could be a serious safety problem.
