American diplomat's wife flees United Kingdom after fatal auto crash

British Foreign Secretary has urged the US to reconsider its decision to allow the diplomat's wife to keep her immunity

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said he will make a personal plea to the White House should a USA diplomat's wife fail to return to the U.K.to face questioning in a wrong-way collision that killed a British teenager.

Harry, of Banbury, died on August 27 after his motorbike collided with a auto close to RAF Croughton in Northamptonshire, a military base used by the US Air Force.

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 parents of a British teenager whom police say was killed in a wrong-way collision involving the wife of a U.S. diplomat said in a televised interview that they are willing to travel to America to get justice for their son, Harry Dunn.

Ms Sacoolas is believed to have been driving on the wrong side of the road.

Ms Charles said: "If we have to we will go to Washington".

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has urged the United States to reconsider its decision to give her immunity.

Under the 1961 Vienna Convention, diplomats and their family members are typically immune from prosecution in their host country.

The British Crown Prosecution Service's website states that only diplomats and their families based in London are entitled to claim diplomatic immunity, but Sky News reported that a special deal was in place between the USA and the U.K.to include those based at RAF Croughton.

In an incredibly moving interview, the parents of Harry Dunn, who was killed in a vehicle collision allegedly involving a U.S. diplomat's wife, tell Sarah-Jane Mee they're not looking for punishment - just closure so they can grieve for their son.

The British Government has been urging officials in the USA to facilitate the return of the suspect, Anne Sacoolas. The case will receive intense attention at senior levels, the spokesperson said, and the department will consider its global impact, as it does with all cases like this. We still don't wish her any harm because she's a mum.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday urged Sacoolas to return to Britain and face justice - and vowed to broach the topic with President Trump if she refused.

In a show of incredible compassion given the circumstances, Ms Charles conceded that the woman "made a mistake that night" but wants her to come back to the United Kingdom to speak to her.

"Immunity is rarely waived", the U.S. State Department told CNN in a statement. Her 12-year-old son was reportedly in the passenger seat when she crashed into Harry Dunn.

He said: "They've been told the answer is no, we've learnt via the police".

"We just don't understand how you can just get on a plane and leave behind the devastation she has without even speaking to us or facing us, or an apology of any kind".

"We can't grieve for him at the minute because we don't know where we're going", the victim's father Tim Dunn, told the BBC.

Dunn is described as motorbike enthusiast who "lived his short life to the fullest" in a GoFundMe page called "Justice 4 Harry" that was started by a family friend.
