Harry Dunn’s parents urge U.S. diplomat’s wife to return to Britain to face allegations about crash that killed their son

New York Daily News Incident 1 month ago

The parents of the British teen motorcyclist killed in a traffic crash allegedly caused by an American diplomat’s wife made an emotional plea Monday for the woman to return to the UK.

Charlotte Charles and Tim Dunn spoke of justice for their 19-year-old son Harry, who was killed as he rode his bike outside an air force base in southern England on Aug. 27.

Anne Sacoolas left Britain following the fatal crash, and officials have said that her diplomatic immunity, which was called into question, “is no longer pertinent.” It is believed that Sacoolas has returned to the U.S.

“A lady made a mistake, she killed our son,” Tim Dunn said during a press conference in New York City on Monday. “She didn’t mean to kill him, she didn’t mean to have the accident, but you cannot walk away from that and just leave and expect nothing to happen. Our boy died, he deserves to have some justice, whatever that turns out to be.”

Harry Dunn was killed in August when his motorcycle collided with a car outside a British air force base in southern England.

Sacoolas, who is 42, initially told police “she had no plans to leave the country in the near future," but she would bolt the UK in early October. She did apologize to Harry Dunn's parents in a statement released through her lawyer.

Charles, who broke down while speaking to reporters, said that the family does not want to take Sacoolas away from her children, “although she’s robbed us of one of ours.”

“It was an accident, we understand that,” she said. “But seven weeks on, and we’ve had to do this to get an apology, just in writing. That’s just wrong.”

Tim Dunn told CBS News in an interview also published Monday that he was able to speak with Harry at the scene of the crash.

“I could see broken bones out of his arms and stuff. But he was talking,” he told CBS News. “I called out to him and said, ‘Harry, it’s your dad. They’re going to fix you. They’re going to fix you. Be calm. Let them help you.’ He stopped moaning because he was complaining that he couldn’t breathe very well.”
