Try spraying a little wd40 into the cylinder and turn the wheel left and right hard it should free up. if it does not you will need to replace lock cylinder.

I've had this happen on other cars. Just pull the steering wheel hard to one side or the other while trying to turn the key (if one way doesn't work, try the other). Pesky steering column lock.
