A Prince William County woman has been indicted in the death of a police officer in a New Year's Eve crash in Bristow, Va.

County police officer Chris Yung was on his motorcycle on Nokesville Road, headed to the scene of another accident, when Margaret Luecke crossed in front of him as she tried to turn left into a shopping center, authorities said. Their vehicles caught fire when they collided.

A grand jury indicted Luecke, of Gainesville, for reckless driving last week.

Her trial has been set for July.

A seven-year veteran of the department, Yung, 35, left behind a wife and three children. He had previously served in the United States Marine Corps.
