Default Key broke in ignition. Daughter stranded

Hi all.
My daughter has a 2007 cx-9. She called me from Paducah (I'm in Corbin) Ky and she managed to break off the metal part of her one and only key fob in the ignition.
She tried to start it by turning by the little piece that was sticking out, but no luck. I assume it must be attached to the fob part?
Anyhow, she got thru to the dealer late Sat afternoon and they're telling her she'll have to have the vehicle towed there for them to program another key.
As bad as that is, they also say their only tech that can do this is out all next week.
She just moved there this fall and started her first "straight out of college" high school teaching job. She knows no one there.
Is there any other option for her?
Thanks in advance.

Google mobile locksmiths in the area & see if any are automotive.

A good local locksmith should be able to get her going, and for half what the dealership will charge.

A locksmith was a much better option than what would have happened in my household. My wife would have sent me Paducah to drive her to work.
