The family of a British teenager who was killed by the wife of a U.S. diplomat driving the wrong way will meet with members of the Trump administration on Tuesday, a White House official said.

White House officials to meet with parents of teen killed by U.S. diplomat's wife

Tim Dunn and Charlotte Charles will meet with senior administration officials at the White House, the official said. It's unclear if they will meet with .

Harry Dunn, 19, was killed in August in an accident near RAF Croughton, a British military base used by the U.S. Air Force. Dunn was riding a motorcycle when he was struck by Anne Sacoolas, the wife of a U.S. diplomat, who was driving on the wrong side of the road.

Sacoolas claimed diplomatic immunity after the incident and returned to the United States.

Dunn’s parents say Sacoolas should not have been allowed to return home and are seeking answers.

The incident has led to some diplomatic tensions between the U.S. and the United Kingdom. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson last week urged the U.S. to reconsider giving diplomatic immunity to Sacoolas in the case.

Dunn's parents came to the U.S. this week and have urged Trump to intervene so that Sacoolas can be held accountable.

Trump was asked last week about ongoing negotiations with Johnson over Dunn's death, which the president referred to as a "terrible accident."

"You have two wonderful parents that lost their son, and the woman was driving on the wrong side of the road," he said. "And that can happen. You know, those are the opposite roads. That happens. I won't say it ever happened to me, but it did."

Trump did not directly answer whether he would lift diplomatic immunity for Sacoolas in the case, describing it as a "very complex issue."
