Your intermediate steering shaft most likely came loose or snapped. Open your hood and follow the steering shaft down to the rack and pinion.

there is a plasic cover inside the car over the steering column down by the gas pedal. Pull it off and look at the u joint. See if it is broken or the bolt has fallen out of it. If not the rack and pinion will prob have to be replaced.
