Can the key turn the ignition to ACC and ON? Is the problem you can't turn it back to OFF/LOCK? Try turning the steering wheel slightly, make sure the shift lever is fully in PARK. Then check under the dash for a cable that runs from the steering column, jostle it a bit and see if that frees the key.
