DOVER — Four people suffered minor injuries when a vehicle being chased by police collided with three others at an intersection Monday, authorities said.

The crash, at the intersection of Saulsbury Road and Forrest Avenue, ended a pursuit that began at the Delaware Probation and Parole building at 511 Maple Parkway, Dover police spokesman Sgt. Mark Hoffman said. The incident occurred at 12:55 p.m., he said.

The sequence started after officers located a GMC Terrain believed to be involved in a Thursday shooting, police said. The vehicle fled from the building’s parking lot when officers attempted to contact the driver, Kyree Robinson, 23, of Dover, Sgt. Hoffman said.

The chase proceeded through various parts of the city. Mr. Robinson was quickly taken into custody by officers after the collision on eastbound Forrest Avenue, according to authorities.

The injured included three females, ages 67, 63 and 51, along with a 51-year-old male, Sgt. Hoffman said. Their injuries were described as “various aches/pains.” Some were transported to Bayhealth Hospital, Kent Campus, in Dover for evaluation, but all were released.

Mr. Robinson, who police said was alone in the vehicle, was uninjured. The Terrain was impounded at the Dover Police Department.

The suspect was charged with disregarding a police officer’s signal, resisting arrest, third-degree vehicular assault (four counts), reckless driving (three counts) and 23 traffic offenses. He was committed to Sussex Correctional Institution, Georgetown, on a $3,300 secured bond.

Multiple vehicles were towed from the scene, police said.

The investigation is ongoing, and police asked anyone with information to call 736-7130. Callers may remain anonymous. Tips may also be submitted to law enforcement through Delaware Crime Stoppers at 800-TIP-3333 or here; a cash reward is possible for information leading to an arrest.

The Thursday shooting occurred in the Bicentennial Village neighborhood. According to authorities, a person in a Terrain fired multiple rounds toward a Chevrolet Trailblazer at the intersection of Bicentennial Boulevard and Declaration Drive.

Both vehicles fled, police said, and the Trailblazer had multiple bullet holes when later located nearby.
