Check the voltage of the battery. It could just be weak. Did you try jump starting the car? If the battery checks out, then it sounds related to the ignition lock cylinder or switch. You'll need to call for roadside assistance either way. See if they can get it to start by jump starting. If not, then you'll need to have the car towed to the garage for diagnosis.
