good way to get hit with an insurance fraud charge
Without anything damaged, lost or stolen there is nothing to claim.
It would be an auto claim for the damage to the other and a homeowners claim for the damage to your property. You cannot be liable to yourself, so you cannot claim the property damage on your auto policy.
The tow company is responsible for damage they did to the vehicle, if they claim they didn't do it you have to prove it and make a claim/sue them, otherwise you need to claim it on your insurance.
Yes you can withdraw your claim, but once reported, the damage and the claim filing are still on record.
Call your insurance company and get a claim started.
It just counts on what your insurance clam is.
