Try turning the steering wheel 'hard' left then right while turning the key at the same time. Steering wheel may be holding pressure on the lock and key lock cylinder. By turning the wheel a bit it should take this pressure away and allow the key to turn. Turn the wheel and key hard, like you mean it!! (Possible) Post results for others that may have this problem!
