U.S. diplomat's wife flees after killing teen in wrong-way crash: UK


Harry Dunn was 19-years-old when he was killed in a hit and run.

The prime suspect is the wife of an American diplomat who has allegedly fled the U.K.

Now, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has asked the U.S. to reconsider the diplomatic immunity of Anne Sacoolas, 42.

According to cops, Sacoolas pulled out on the wrong side of the road and slammed into Dunn’s motorcycle in August.

Sacoolas originally cooperated with cops but then claimed diplomatic immunity and fled Britain.

Johnson’s people called the case “extremely concerning” and urged the Americans to “reconsider their position” so “the justice process can take place”.

“I think everybody’s sympathies are with the family of Harry Dunn for their tragic loss,” Johnson said. “But I do not think that it can be right to use the process of diplomatic immunity for this type of purpose.”

The PM added: “I hope Anne Sacoolas will come back and will engage properly with the processes of law that are carried out in this country.”

The dead teen’s parents have even begged U.S. President Donald Trump to take action.

“President Trump, please listen. We’re a family in ruin. We’re broken,” the family said.”We can’t grieve. Please, please let her get back on a plane.”

According to cops, Sacoolas — a Virginia native — had been in the country for just three weeks. Her children went to the $30,000 school where the dead man’s dad worked as a janitor.

Bizarrely, diplomats and their families stationed at RAF Croughton have diplomatic immunity.

The Mail on Sunday reported that Sacoolas’ hubby was a senior spy.

“He was working at Croughton, which is a communications base, so he was working with intelligence which is, I guess, why it has been handled in the way that it has,” said Radd Seiger.

Sky News reported that the woman was advised by the U.S. embassy in London to flee the country.
