Anne Sacoolas, the U.S. diplomat’s wife who fled the U.K. after killing a 19-year-old man while she was driving on the wrong side of the road, will appear in court virtually this week.
Sacoolas, 45, had just pulled out of Royal Air Force Base Croughton in Northamptonshire, England, in August 2019 when she rounded a hill and collided head-on with a motorcycle driven by Harry Dunn. He died later that day.
Harry Dunn was riding his motorcycle outside a military base in Central England in August 2019 when he collided with Anne Sacoolas, pictured, who confessed to driving on the wrong side of the road.
At the time it emerged that she had been in the country just three weeks. Her 12-year-old son was in the passenger seat of her car when she hit Dunn, and then drove off in what was classified as a hit-and-run.
When found later, Sacoolas at first cooperated with authorities, but then left the country, invoking diplomatic immunity. She fled after assuring investigators she planned to stay put. Dunn’s family tried to get her extradited back, to no avail, and filed a wrongful-death suit in February last year.
