A Prince William County motorcycle officer died Monday afternoon after a crash with a minivan in Bristow.

The officer, Chris Yung, 35, had been with the department for seven years and worked with the traffic unit. He had previously served in the United States Marine Corps, and is survived by, among others, his wife and three children.

Police said the minivan was turning left into a shopping center and passed in front of Yung. When the vehicles collided, they caught fire.

The driver of the minivan has been identified as 69-year-old Margaret Luecke of Gainesville, according to News4's David Culver. Police have not said whether she will be charged in connection with the crash. The investigation is ongoing.

A candlelight vigil will be held at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Target location at 9900 Sowder Village Square, where the accident occurred. Attendees are requested to bring their own candle.
