Sorry for your loss, but glad you're ok, and a car is replaceable.....
For the recall all that's done is the key is removed from the fob and attach the key to the fob with a key ring, which makes the fob dangle even lower, and IMHO even easier to turn the key off while driving. As mentioned in a earlier post, most people have a ton of crap attached to their car keys which resulted in those issues, and Chevy issuing a fix. Not sure if you had it done that it would've mattered with you reaching in the back for the water bottle. Cooler should've been up front within easy reach, or pulled over to get the water.
Had a class through work and one of the presenters was a NC State Trooper a month ago, and distracted driving is becoming a very real problem. When you're driving, all you need to do is be driving and paying attention. Think that's the reason for the latest commercial from Chevy on how easy it is to get distracted. Doubt there's cause for a lawsuit.
