Seven people were injured Sunday afternoon in a multi-vehicle crash at Delaware Avenue and Edward Street following a police chase.

A State Police officer tried to pull over a Jeep near Niagara Square at about 4:15 p.m., when the driver sped off, then ran a red light at Delaware and Edward, striking two other vehicles, police said. The two people in the Jeep, who also were injured, were arrested. All seven victims were taken to Erie County Medical Center with injuries ranging from cuts and bruises to broken bones and a concussion, authorities said. The crash closed Delaware Avenue for several hours.
