yes this is common with tow trucks picking up cars that are parked and do not have keys for them.

I have seen axles broken in half, transmissions damaged, control arms broken, sway bars bent, tie rod ends broken.

Think about it like this, they are trying to tow your car in the fastest possible way they can, do you think they are worried about damage to your car because you parked somewhere illegal? Usually they have you sign a thing saying you will not sue them for damage they caused because you parked illegally.
