1999 E430 Key Won't Come Out & Car Won't Start After Accident

My E430 was front ended and the car won't start now, key won't come out of the ignition. It really doesn't look like the engine has moved from the impact but thats the only thing I can think of, I need ideas basically, if anyone knows anything I'd love to hear it. I'll post up pics of the damage tomorrow if it helps diagnose it

"It's already totaled, but they let me keep the title clean, it's NJ law over 8 years old no need for a salvage title"

This is why Jersey has such a bad reputation for used cars, and why you should never buy a used car that was titled there.
Same in Texas. Any car written off by an insurance company regardless of age, if rebuilt will carry a salvage title. It also goes into the searchable database of insurance write offs.
