An off-duty Chicago police officer was killed after a police chase that started in a south suburb ended in a crash just off the Dan Ryan Expressway on the South Side early Friday, police said.

About 1 a.m., police in south suburban Calumet Park chased a vehicle onto the Dan Ryan expressway early Friday, police said. The chase ended with a two-vehicle crash in the 8700 block of South Lafayette Avenue, just off the Dan Ryan. The off-duty officer was driving a black Lexus sedan, police said.

The officer’s age, gender and rank were not immediately known. The Cook County Medical Examiner’s office could not confirm the death Friday morning.

It was not known what prompted the chase onto the Dan Ryan, and Calumet Park police declined to comment.

The Chicago police Major Accidents Investigations Unit was investigating the crash.

You Madame are throwing hate.If the cop followed rules and regs and listened to the order to terminate it would have been avoided. You all hide behind your badge, thing is one day you wont have it you will retire or whatever and you will see that all your years of service meant nothing to the new asshole bearing a star. You ever wonder why the guy stocking shelves has to have random drug testing but the police don't. If they did more than half would test positive. BROTHER

The Chicago officer killed was an innocent but the CYA from Calumet Park is frantic. The chase was called off, it wasn't called off, and the village lawyer is fielding questions. What this, described as a veteran Calumet Park cop, was doing so far from Calumet Park is puzzling. Did he contact CPD to tell them he was in pursuit of a fleeing vehicle? According to some new reports, Chicago told Calumet Park to call off the chase. The Chicago officer killed, David Harris, was on his way home after his shift, still in uniform and leaves behind a wife and two kids. Prayers for his family

Officers should maintain a higher level of critical thinking and be provided with training to deal with situations in a more professional manner.
