A man behind the wheel of a green van led Philadelphia police on a chase that went along I-95 and ended near Penn's Landing early Thursday afternoon.

The pursuit started near I Street and Venango when police say the man in the van hit two cars.

When officers showed up, the driver took off, police say, and they followed.

Two more cars -- police cruisers -- got rammed before police surrounded the van on Delaware Avenue near Lombard Street. 

They apprehended the driver, who was later hospitalized. 

One police officer had some minor injuries.
