Re: steering frozen, front passenger wheel fell off,...
No he only did what was necessary to try to get the vehicle to where you needed it to go, if the steering was already locked thats probably why it was locked. but no the tow truck driver did only as requested and did not cause the damage

Front wheel drives should be raised and towed from the front. On rear wheel drives the drive shaft should be removed and towed from the front, with steering wheel loosely tied down. However, it is best to just put each model on a flatbed off the ground.
That sounds very much like you broke off a tie rod end. Check to see if the front wheels agree with each other. Turn the steering far left, verify both front wheels are turned left. Turn the steering far right, verify both wheels are turned right. If the front wheels don't agree, DO NOT attempt to drive the car - have it towed somewhere or have someone repair the steering where it sits.
If you are only hearing this clunking sound when you are turning then you need to have your cv axles replaced. Also known as half-axles. In a truck, these are known as the universal joints. You can take your vehicle to the local tire/front end clinic and they will tell you whether or not, it is worth the fix.
High speed steering wheel vibrations and wobbling are almost always due to an unbalanced tire. Start there, cheap, and then move onto more expensive front end part repairs. If you have those silly mag type big wheels which collect and hold gunks of ice in them, then this is what you can expect.
1. If you disconnect the transmission , no.
2. Either your steering shaft - relatively cheap and easy to replace - or the steering box - expensive and hard to replace - are at fault. How was your luck lately?
A 1996 Buick Lasabre is a front wheel drive (FWD) car, so the front of the motor is facing the front passenger side wheel of the car. That said, the power steering fluid reservoir should be close to the front passenger side wheel tower.
