DETROIT (WJBK) -

A police chase in northwest Detroit ended in a crash Monday night.

Police said it all started around 9:00 p.m. in Oak Park after a Dollar General store at Nine Mile and Scotia was robbed.

We're told Oak Park police spotted the suspect in a silver Ford Ranger at Eight Mile and Schaefer.  They chased him for a couple of miles to McNichols and Schaefer.  That's when the Ranger struck a Volkswagen heading east on McNichols.  

We're also told the suspect from Detroit was not injured in the crash and taken into custody.  A woman in the Volkswagen was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.  She was wearing her seatbelt and will be fine.
