Prince William County Police are on the lookout for a Great Pyrenees dog that apparently ran away from the scene of a fatal crash Sunday afternoon.

The crash happened in the 3100 block of James Madison Highway in Haymarket, Va.

The driver of the Dodge Caravan in which the dog was traveling attempted to pass a vehicle traveling in the southbound lane, crossed a double yellow line and slammed into a 2004 Winnebago RV, police said.

The driver of the van was killed. She’s been identified as Charlotte Brown Perry, 72, of Midland. A male passenger in the van, 79, also of Midland, was flown to an area hospital. The extent of his injuries is not known.

The Winnebago driver and a passenger were not injured.

The white Great Pyrenees was in a cage in the Dodge Caravan. The collision forced the cage open and the dog remains missing, police said. Anyone who spots the dog is asked to call Prince William County Police.
