Volvo S 70: I hit my son's S70 in the drivers side front wheel.

Customer Question
I hit my son's S70...
I hit my son's S70 in the drivers side front wheel. The key will no longer turn past the first position. The wipers and everything come on but we can't turn the engine over. Is this something that can be reset?
