Time to take a trip to your local garage and have them inspect the car for what part is broke or our of alignment. I suspect at least a tie-rod end or ball joint and or control arm was damaged, not to mention the rim and or tire.

You definitely knocked out your alignment. A tie rod would be the minimum and most likely but a 97 could have worn ball joints also. Tom has the right idea... go to an alignment shop pronto!
