David Haynes, a 27-year-old St. Louis police officer with one year on the force, was killed this morning in a four-car crash at Kingshighway and Oleatha while pursuing a burglary suspect.

Haynes, a newlywed, picked up a radio call describing a burglary suspect and his car. St. Louis police spokesperson Erica Van Ross said Haynes spotted the the suspect's car and pursued with lights and sirens on. Police said Haynes' car was struck from both sides at the intersection of Kingshighway and Oleatha Avenue.

Police said they received a call about a burglary in progress in the 5400 block of Bancroft Avenue. A suspect was breaking into a home at that location; another person came home to find the burglary in progress and called police, officials said. The burglary victim described the suspect and the car. Haynes spotted the car on Kingshighway. The suspect is still at large, described as a medium-build black male with a "chin beard" and two gold teeth. He wore a black polo shirt and dark jeans.
