Officer Chris Yung was killed in a motorcycle crash at the intersection of Nokesville Road and Piper Lane, in Bristow, while responding to the scene of a separate automobile accident.
A minivan made a left hand turn from northbound Nokesville Road into a shopping center and crossed in front of the officer's motorcycle, causing a collision. Officer Yung was transported to a local hospital where he died from his injuries.
Officer Yung had served with the Prince William County Police Department for seven years and was assigned to the Traffic Unit.
Officer Yung was a member of Law Enforcement United and served as a motor escort officer during the annual ride.

I thank you for for the kind words in this thread.
I know I am not everyone's best friend here, but I want to simply remind all of us who wear a badge, is a dispatcher or has a family in this field: Look out for each other and cherish the times you have together with your friends and co workers. I know police officers are merciless in ball busting (it's a perk of the job imo), but we all know that we would gladly give our lives for our friends without a moment's hesitation.
I also wanted to add that Chris' funeral was today and the amount of officers who came from all along the east coast was staggering and is a testament to a brotherhood that we all hold dear.
