Officials say they caught up with the Tahoe going south on Fulton and stopped it underneath the Lloyd Expressway overpass. 

Authorities say the driver was arrested on hit and run and alcohol charges.

Officials say the driver of the mini van was complaining of neck and leg pain and was taken by ambulance to an area hospital for treatment.
