Alarm Brings Rescuers to Pair Pinned Under Truck.

Quick aid came to two men pinned under an overturned automobile truck in unusual fashion early yesterday morning because the truck as it skidded smashed into a fire alarm box pillar and sent in an alarm. Firemen who responded freed the imprisoned pair by the time an ambulance, summoned by a policeman, had arrived to take them to St. Vincent's Hospital.

The accident happened at Hudson and Bank Streets to a truck belonging to the Metropolitan Distributers Company of 520 West Twentieth Street, which was speeding downtown loaded with newspapers. Dave Kreitzman of 1,741 Carter Avenue, the Bronx, the chauffeur, was not injured seriously, but it is feared that George Dodd of 520 West Fiftieth Street, the "tall man," received internal injuries.
