Has anyone experienced their steering wheel locking up without the key?

Hey guys, need a bit of help here. So, I’ve got this 2012 Accent and the steering wheel is completely locked up. Normally, you’d just jiggle the key a bit and it’d come loose, but here’s the kicker - I’ve lost the key.

I had to get it towed to a friend’s place, but when we tried moving it, the steering wheel locked up again and we couldn’t turn the wheels to maneuver it into place. It was a whole ordeal just figuring out how to get it into neutral without the key (turns out there’s a manual gear shifter under the air filter).

So, any ideas on how to unlock it without the key?
