    Sounds like a possible failed power steering pump? How fast were you going? Also.. By tires locking up, do you mean the wheels would not change direction left to right in correspondence with the steering rack?

    That's dangerous...stop driving it. It sounds like your EPS is going. Is it under warranty? It could also be the drive belt slipping or the pulley itself. Noises? Smells? Anything else to go on? wet/dry outside/temperature?
