It is reported that the van driver crashed into a car after earlier being pursued by officers in an unmarked vehicle and then fled the scene on foot.
The incident happened on Stoops Lane at the junction with Clayworth Drive in Bessacarr yesterday.
Stoops Lane was closed while police dealt with the incident but it is believed it has since been reopened.
It has not yet been confirmed if the van was being pursued by police when the collision happened.
We have contacted South Yorkshire Police and are awaiting further details.
