The key will not turn the statrer seams lock

Sometimes it is due to the steering lock. Try and turn the steering wheel slightly to the left or right and see if that allows the key to turn. If it doesn't then most likely the ignition switch will need to be replaced.

could be a faulty safety start switch, as far as the steering wheel locking up,, most the time thats just caused by turning off the key while the wheels are up against a parking curb or something thats putting pressure on the wheels, if the key won't turn Just pull it from side to side as you wiggle the key , I'd have the safety switch in the shifter checked, and maybe adjusted

Steering wheel is locked nd wont unlock even with

Typically, the steering is preloaded. This happens when car is turned off with some steering assist being applied (whether you know it or not).

Often you have to manhandle the wheel in one direction or the other while turning the key.

2002 buick regal won't start

I have a 2003 buick regal. I found a small cover or tab about 3/4 of an inch square under the bottom of the steering column cover. If you remove that tab and take a thin object , like a phillips screwdriver and shove it up that hole it will release the ignition so you can turn it back and pull out your key. What a great discovery!
