Margaret Luecke, of Gainesville, is set for a two-day jury trial in July.
A grand jury has indicted a Gainesville woman on reckless driving charges in connection to the accident that ended the life of Prince William County Police Officer Chris Yung.
Insidenova.com reported Friday afternoon that Margaret Luecke, 69, of Gainesville, was driving the Dodge Caravan that allegedly pulled out in front of Yung's motorcycle Dec. 31.
Yung, 35, was driving his motorcycle to a traffic accident. Authorities said that he was driving through a green light on Nokesville Road in Bristow, with his sirens and lights on, when a 2001 Dodge Caravan crossed into his path.
The grand jury indicted Leuecke on Feb. 4, according to court records. During an interview with Patch on Thursday, new Police Chief Steve Hudson said he expected to make an announcement about the case very soon.
Court records show that Luecke's two-day jury trial is set for July 15 and 16 in Prince William County Circuit Court.
