is it a column shift or floor shift?

Not much you can do except for stomping on the brake pedal and hoping that it's a interlock that needs adjusting.

It is a floor shift ((automatic)

Well I cant find a good picture of the shifter. but there should be a shift interlock override buttom to where you can get it out of park. if it doesnt have one you could take the trim off the side of the shifter and disconnect the solenoid and get it out of park that way.

check the fuses to the shift interlock one may have blown causing this issue also
