Police in Prince William County are asking residents who may come in contact with a dog that went missing from the scene of a fatal vehicle crash Sunday to contact authorities. 

Police said they responded to the 3100 block of James Madison Highway (Rte. 15) in Haymarket shortly before 4:30 p.m. Sunday for the report of a crash between a 2005 Dodge Caravan and a 2004 Winnebago RV.

The driver of the caravan, identified as Charlotte Brown PERRY, 72, of Midland, Va., was pronounced dead on the scene, according to Prince William County Officer Jonathan Perok.

 A passenger in the caravan, identified as a 79-year-old man also from Midland, was flown to a local hospital following the crash. His injuries were unknown at the time. 

The two occupants of the RV, of Jefferson, Md.,  were not injured, police said. 

A preliminary investigation has revealed that the Dodge Caravan was traveling southbound on James Madison Hwy  crossed  into the path of 2004 Winnebago RV when it attempted to pass a car traveling in the same direction. 

Speed and alcohol are not factors in this collision, police said.

Traveling inside the Caravan was a white Great Pyrenees, which was in a carrier. The collision forced the carrier open and the dog remains missing.

Residents who may come in contact with the dog (see photo) are asked to please contact police. 

Drivers in the area Sunday encountered delays as officials investigated the crash. Rte. 15 was reportedly closed for a period of time near Rte. 235 in the Manassas area.

An update on the crash location - it was just south of Logmill Rd, on Rt. 15. There appear to have been sightings of the dog on Ingram Drive, off Logmill Rd.
