The manhunt has prompted some Philadelphia schools to be on lockdown, police said.

Robinson, 20, is at-large after fleeing the scene of a crash Wednesday morning, according to ABC Philadelphia station WPVI-TV.

Robinson was wanted for probation violations in Delaware, and when officers tried to pull him over, he fled, WPVI-TV said.

He allegedly rammed another car, causing a crash with police; three officers suffered minor injuries, WPVI-TV reported. Robinson then crashed into another car and a SEPTA bus, WPVI-TV said.

In addition to the warrant for probation violations in Delaware, Robinson is also wanted for eluding police involving injuries and firearms violations in Pennsylvania, according to Philadelphia police.
