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.
