You are being treated unfairly because there is a police report and witness.
It may be difficult to prove bad faith against the insurance company at this point because unfortunately the company is siding with its insured who is lying.
Your recourse is to sue the at-fault party (tow company and driver) for negligence. You would file one lawsuit naming both of them as defendants.
