Got stuck when key wouldn't turn in the ignition. Tried everything & the tow truck driver also tried before towing.
Do you
have the same problem?

Sometimes if the wheels are sharply turned and the steering wheel is locked, you can try turning the steering wheel just a little in the opposite direction and the key will turn. However, the tow-truck driver should have known and tried this. So it's probably a defective ignition key cylinder.
