It sounds like you have a broken tie rod. There is an inner, and outer tie rod on both sides. Obviously, you can not drive the vehicle. All of the related parts need to be inspected for damage. This is not a usual occurrence. A qualified mechanic from YourMechanic can come out and further diagnose the issue if you need help. If necessary, they will be able to replace broken tie rods.
