A 33-year-old man was taken to a hospital after becoming unresponsive in a struggle when state troopers caught him after a foot chase near City Avenue in Montgomery County on Friday night, the Pennsylvania State Police said.

State troopers had initiated a traffic stop of a rental vehicle about 11:30 p.m. at 555 City Ave., in Bala Cynwyd.

The location is that of a Joe's Crab Shack.

In a news release issued Saturday, state police did not say why the vehicle was stopped.

The statement said that after being stopped, the driver fled on foot and was then chased on foot by troopers who caught up with him near City Avenue.

"During a struggle to control the suspect, the suspect became unresponsive," the statement said.

Medics were called to the scene and the man was taken to Lankenau Medical Center in Wynnewood for treatment.

State Police said the man's name was not being released because of the ongoing police investigation and pending notification of family members.

A trooper who answered the phone at the State Police Belmont Barracks in Philadelphia said he could not release any further information.

NBC10 reported that the rental vehicle, a U-Haul truck, was stopped in the parking lot of Joe's Crab Shack. It said a witness reported that the man was Tasered by police during the struggle.

A manager at Joe's Crab Shack said Saturday that he didn't know what happened.
