SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — A police chase in Syracuse ended in the arrest of a man who was also a suspect in a larceny.

Police say it started Monday morning when officers observed a Chevy Venture van that was operating without a headlight. Officers tried to stop the vehicle, but the driver refused.

A short pursuit ensued. At one point, the driver of the van failed to make a turn in the 2800 block of Lodi Street. As a result, the van hit a tree, and the driver sustained injuries to his lower legs.

The driver of the van was identified as Stephen Marks, 45. Marks was also a suspect in a larceny. He was taken to Upstate University Hospital for treatment, where he is expected to survive.

Marks is facing a charge of unlawfully fleeing a police officer in the third-degree.
