Prince William County Officer Dies in Line of Duty
The officer died in a crash on Nokesville Road, near the Super Target.
A young Prince William County Police officer died Monday in a crash on Nokesville Road.
Chris Yung, 35, a seven-year employee of the department, was assigned to the traffic division and was traveling on his motorcycle to another incident just after 2 p.m. when the crash happened.
The driver of a mini-van was traveling north on Nokesville Road and made a left hand turn into the Super Target shopping center into the officer's path, who was traveling south on the roadway.
Yung was transported to a local hospital, where he later died, Prince William County Police spokesman Jonathan Perok said.
No one else was injured in the crash.
Acting Prince William County Police Chief Lt. Col. Barry Barnard asks for the public's thoughts and prayers as the department copes with the loss of a colleague and friend.
It is not immediately clear if the driver of the minivan will be charged in the crash.
The incident remains under investigation.
