So the other night I ran off the road a little into a ditch going like 40 or 50 and smacked my tire in a concrete ditch (don't ask). Now when I drive the car I have to turn the wheel to the left to keep it straight and the steering just seems off, a lot tighter and it seems to pull me around sometimes. Any chance I could have bent the axle?

It sounds like you bent the tie rod. Its nothing serious, you just need to have it replaced and an alignment to straighten it out.

Stop driving the car - you have no idea what kind of damage you may have done. You're a danger on the road to yourself and to other drivers. Have it towed to a shop and repaired.

It might be that it just screwed up your alinement. If that's the case, it's like $60 to get it realined
