Question about 1991 Buick Regal
I recently bought a well- kept 1991 Buick Regal Limited with 88000 miles. I was driving yesterday on a winding road, suddenly going round a curve the steering wheel locked, after a few seconds I managed to get it off on the shoulder of the road. I turned it off and restarted; the car started but the engine had a humming sound...I did not drive it (my 86 yr old mother was in the car); we called the tow truck; it was a very hot, dry day (102')but the car was not overheating even though I had exited the highway about 5 miles before. The mechanic shop did a diagnostic and said they could not find any reason for what happened. Why is this happening? What could I do to prevent this from happening again...maybe on the highway next time?

you may have to replace the steering column you can get one from a salvage yard and have the switch rekeyed for your key to fit it

SOURCE: Car shuts off while driving
I have a 1997 buick regal gs 3.8 supercharge
the car would not start some days and it would quit while running. the instrument guage lights would come on and when i turn on the turn signal the guages would go crazy and the buzzer would sound. I replaced the ingition switch for 102.00 from auto zone and that fixed the problem

I had this exact problem several years ago: my car would just shut off while both braking and turning, usually on exit ramps. I got very good at shifting to neutral/turning the car off and on/shifting into drive all while suffering through the lack of power steering. It usually freaked my passengers out.
It ended up being the EGR valve, a costly but very necessary fix.
