Suspects Lamar Alexander and Ronnie Jerome hill then hijacking the ups truck, taking the driver, frank Ordonez, hostage, fleeing on the Florida turnpike and interstate 75 and then local streets. The suspects firing back at an armada of police. This is an area that's very, very crowded, nothing but choking traffic he's about to get into. Reporter: TV choppers tracking every move. The truck jumping sidewalks and running lights before finally getting stuck in a traffic jam. Police have guns drawn in that area. This is pretty dangerous with so many other cars around.
