2012 Ford Escape steering is stiff after replacement

Have a 2012 Ford Escape limited edition. It’s a 3.0L v6 has 58xxx miles and it had a crash in the front driver side which destroy the fuse box and other composites and after the crash, the steering wheel is hard to turn I all ready had a profession install the steering wheel sensor because he said that was the problem but it’s still hard to move side by side at low speed but passing over 45 it loosens up a bit

Either have this thing repaired by an actual body shop or park it. You are a hazard to yourself and the other people who use the road with you.

no i took it to the machine by tow truck and he replace the steering wheel sensor but it still stiff
