Police are searching for the driver of a dollar van that hit two vehicles and crashed into a light pole, before abandoning the vehicle at the scene in Flatlands on Thursday evening, according to authorities. 

No one was reported injured in the chaos, but the incident resulted in “extensive” damage to the cars, police from the 63rd Precinct said.

The mayhem began at about 4:45 pm near Flatbush and Utica avenues after the van driver smashed into a silver Subaru — and then tried to flee, according to police.

The Subaru driver then gave chase toward Schenectady Avenue and Avenue I, where the van driver plowed into a Volkswagen — before speeding into a nearby light pole, cops said. 

The fugitive driver then jumped out of the van and ran from the scene before police arrived, according to authorities. 

Cops could not immediately comment on who owned the van, and the crash remains under investigation.
