Make sure the car is fully in park. Some cars have a button on the steering column or near the ignition switch to allow you to retrieve the key out of the steering lock, make sure to that the key is in the off position not in the accessory position.

I have a 97 Riviera and I used to have a 95. Sometimes the key would get stuck. Try to turn the steering wheel a bit. Also, get someone to push the car from the front which may help release it.
