If you have a low battery, this may have created a security problem that prevents the key to work and steering to move. First check for loose/dirty battery terminals, clean and tighten well to see if this solves the problem. If you don't have a battery tester, you will need to remove the battery and take it to have it checked at any auto parts store; if it is bad or very low replace it. This is one of the common issues when this problem is appears, lets hope is nothing more serious. Perhaps you get other helpful answers.
