Wow, crazy story. Not sure how the key fell apart from grabbing it. The back plastic part of the key has the transponder chip in it. If you tried to start the car without it, the theft light will go on. Do you have another key at home you can use? You can try disconnecting the battery for a 15mins to clear the system. Reconnect, press unlock on the fob, put the key in and try restarting.
