Firemen Catch Suspect in Slow-Speed Chase

With its siren screaming and engine straining to push it to its full 35-mile-an-hour top speed, a 40-foot Fire Department aerial ladder truck lumbered through 12 blocks of Bronx traffic yesterday afternoon in successful pursuit of a tow truck that had allegedly spedoff after striking a 13-year-old boy.

Firemen said they saw the boy knocked 30 feet through the air. The tow truck got caught in traffic and allowed the firemen to catch up.
