Steering Wheel Problem

I have a 1998 Ford Ranger, and in this wonderful weather we were having, on the way to check traps this morning I slid into the guard rail and thank goodness only the passenger side front tire hit. But now steering wheel is crooked. The truck still tracks straight, but where 12 o'clock should be on the steering wheel is now at about 10 o'clock. I looked behind the wheel and from what I can see nothing is broken. From what I read, a good alignment can fix the crooked steering wheel. Can anybody else who had this problem weigh in on what they did?
