Best Answer

Yes, cars can be towed without a key, and most cars that are towed do not have keys. If a car is towed for being illegally parked, they don't get in touch with the owner of the car and ask to have the key so the car can be towed, they just tow it. The car does not have to have its engine turned on in order to tow it; the tow truck just pulls it along.
