The key may be bent this happened to me. Try squirting a little wd in there and see if you can wiggle it out. You may have to call a lock smith.

Also make sure the truck is fully engaged in Park. You might want to try shifting to neutral and back to Park. Also, you might need to slightly turn the steering wheel to unload the key lock so you can turn the key all the way back.
