A rookie St. Louis officer was killed yesterday morning in a four-vehicle crash while in pursuit of a burglary suspect, according to The St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Officer David Haynes, 27, spotted the suspect’s car and pursued with his lights and sirens on before his cruiser was struck from both sides at the intersection of Kingshighway and Oleatha Avenue.

The suspect is still at large, described as a medium-build black male with a "chin beard" and two gold teeth.

Haynes, a newlywed, had just one year on the force.

"It’s certainly a tragic day for the police department. We are all sorry for the loss, for his wife and mother," Police Chief Dan Isom told the newspaper. "We ask that everyone in St. Louis pray for his family and all of the officers in the St. Louis police department."

Haynes had served in the U.S. Marine Corps and graduated from the St. Louis Police Academy on Jan. 8, 2009, according to the report.

BackStoppers — a St. Louis area non-profit organization that supports the families of the fallen police officers — will meet with Haynes’ widow to present her with a $5,000 check for funeral expenses.
