COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Police have questioned the driver of a sport utility vehicle that dragged a Colorado Springs tow truck operator to his death after the operator became entangled in a chain attached to the SUV.

No arrests have been made in Wednesday's mishap, and investigators haven't said whether the driver knew the man was being dragged.

Police also haven't released the name of the victim or the SUV driver.

Authorities say the tow truck operator had attached the chain to the vehicle to tow it from an apartment complex parking lot when the SUV driver got in and drove away. Investigators say the chain snapped, and the tow operator was somehow caught in the part attached to the SUV. He was dragged for more than a mile.
