SAN ANTONIO – A state administrative judge has recommended suspending Atlas Towing’s license for two years for non-consent tows.

Atlas Towing is the company involved in the dragging death of Natalie Servantes in October. The incident happened at the Salado Springs Apartments.

Servantes’ family said the victim was visiting someone at the complex when her vehicle was towed.

The Servantes family has filed a lawsuit against the company, the driver and the owners of the apartment complex. They claim the tow-truck driver rushed away from Natalie while towing her car.

Natalie tried to flag down the driver, but investigators said she got tangled up and was dragged down Vista Del Norte onto the onramp to Wurzbach Parkway.

The judge cited two towing incidents last spring, which were unrelated to Servantes’ death, as the basis for the license suspension of the company.
