    A driver wanted for a hit-and-run in the Logan Square neighborhood was chased by police early Wednesday morning and later arrested, police said.

    The vehicle was believed to have struck a pedestrian just after midnight in the 2700 block of North Hamlin Avenue, according to the authorities.

    Officers spotted the vehicle shortly after the accident and began pursuing it, officials said.

    The driver was taken into custody nearly two miles away from where the pedestrian was hit, near the intersection of North Monticello Avenue and West Le Moyne Street.

    The pedestrian was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center in stable condition.
