“Family of British Teen Killed in Crash Sues Wife of US Diplomat,” Courthouse News Service
September 09, 2020
British prosecutors have charged the diplomat’s wife with causing death by dangerous driving, but the Trump administration rejected a request to extradite her.
The parents of Harry Dunn, a 19-year-old British man who was killed in a car collision with the wife of an American intelligence officer, sued the couple Wednesday for wrongful death.
The lawsuit, filed in Alexandra, Virginia, federal court by Charlotte Charles and Tim Dunn, says Anne Sacoolas should be held liable for allegedly causing the deadly August 2019 crash by driving in the wrong direction down an English road.
Sacoolas’ husband owned the SUV involved in the incident, according to the complaint filed by Dunn family attorney Steven Toll with the New York City firm Cohen Milstein.
