This is a shop job not a do it yourself. Same thing happened to a Ford Bronco my Dad had. it'lll have to be towed there.

Try turning the key to the very first position - that being BEFORE the dash lights come on.

You should at this point be able to put the car in neutral. Step on your brake pedal then turn the car on.

Hope that at least helps get you to the shop.
