Thumping in an 05 Elantra

So the story I was told was; my wife was driving down the highway on her way home, when she went over a hill, there was a truck coming on the wrong side of the road. She swerved and missed him, lost control, swerved back and forth a few times before regaining control. Since then, the car has developed a thumping/bumping, reminiscent of riding a train. It's speed dependent, sounds/ feels almost like a knob on the tires. I looked them over, didn't see anything. I even put one from my spare set on, drove down the road, rotated it to another wheel, and repeated until I had rotated through each tire. Nothing helped. Any clues or things to check? Is it possible she knocked it out of alignment? It's an 05 elantra gls.

Does the car track left or right?

Glad your wife is ok.
