I was driving the vehicle under speed limit when my steering wheel became stiff. I was driving when my steering wheel became stiff and after few seconds I was at a curve and was not able to turn left and went off the road into a ditch and colliding with an object. The car got huge damage and was not drivable and still in my yard.
