wheel problem on 2000 Ford Escort

front driver's side wheel makes a grinding sound, and when going into a curve the car seems to lose control for a second before regaining control in the curve

This sounds like a serious front end issue that is UNSAFE! I would not drive this vehicle. It sounds like a tie-rod end is about to break off or something or something else. Have this vehicle towed to a front end shop and have this problem inspected before you injure/kill your self or some one else or BOTH! I am totally sincere when I say this.
