It's not uncommon for electronic steering locks to get damaged in a crash. They tend to show no immediate problems but tend to go doo-lally later - even months afterwards. Just hope the column isn't misalgned.
I have seen this on other makes apart from Renaults. Now you know why it is so easy to write a car off nowadays.
On some VW Passats it means replacing the complete column at around £1500 plus
