A man was hospitalized after a shooting in East Frankford, and two others were taken into police custody after a car chase and crash Friday night, police said.

A 26-year-old man was shot once in the right side of his chest and in his right leg after he left a Chinese carryout restaurant on Tackawana Street near Foulkrod about 7 p.m., said Officer Christine O’Brien, a police spokeswoman.

The man was dropped off by a private vehicle at Aria-Frankford Hospital, where he was listed in stable condition as of 8 p.m.

Police were told to look for a green Ford SUV, and when officers from the 15th district began trailing one in the area, it sped away, O’Brien said.

The cops chased the car onto the northbound lanes of I-95. After the driver took an exit and continued trying to evade the police, the car crashed into a light post on Linden Avenue near Keystone Street in Torresdale, O’Brien said.

Two men jumped out of the car and were apprehended by police, O’Brien said. They were taken to the East Detective Division for questioning.
