Woman Fatally Dragged, Run Over While Stopping Tow Truck

A woman found dead on a San Antonio road appears to have been dragged and run over while trying to stop a tow truck from taking her car late Tuesday night, police said.

Investigators said the woman, who hasn't been identified, apparently was trying to stop a tow truck from hauling her vehicle from an apartment complex parking lot.

Police worked to determine whether her clothing, or another personal item, became caught on either vehicle and she was dragged, then run over. Police didn't immediately say which vehicle ran over the woman.

Authorities investigated whether the tow truck driver was aware that the woman was nearby.
