SAN ANTONIO, Texas (WOAI) — Police say a woman who was found dead on a San Antonio street late Tuesday night was apparently dragged by a tow truck.

WOAI reports a witness told officers the victim saw her car being towed somewhere along Wurzbach Parkway near Blanco Road and she started running after it. Police say somehow the woman became entangled with the wrecker and was dragged for about a half mile. Her identity has not been released at this time.

Investigators tell WOAI they were speaking to the towing company to understand what happened. It is not known if the tow truck driver stopped or if he even knew the woman was being dragged.
