Harry Dunn Family – The family of British young Harry Dunn, who died in a car accident two years ago, has achieved a “resolution” in a civil action against the woman charged with his death, the Dunn family spokesman said Tuesday. Anne Sacoolas, the wife of a US ambassador, acknowledged that she was driving on the wrong side of the road during the August 2019 accident. She was subsequently charged with causing Dunn’s death via reckless driving in the United Kingdom.
In January 2020, the US State Department denied her extradition to the United Kingdom for prosecution, and she remained in the United States. In the absence of the ability to prosecute Schools in England, Dunn’s parents, Charlotte Charles and Tim Dunn filed a civil action against her in Virginia, where she resides with her husband.
“Harry’s family continues to endure unspeakable anguish and daily misses him. “It has thus come as a significant comfort to them that a satisfactory settlement of the civil suit has been achieved between the parties, and they can now leave this phase of the campaign behind them.”
According to reports, the family of adolescent motorcycle rider Harry Dunn and US suspect Anne Schools, 44, have struck a “settlement” in a civil lawsuit brought in the United States.
According to Radd Seiger, a spokesperson for the Dunn family, an agreement had been “successfully achieved between the parties, and they can now leave this phase of the campaign behind them.”
US suspect Anne Schools, who is accused with caused 19-year-old Harry’s death by reckless driving outside a Northamptonshire airfield, was scheduled to testify under oath last month as part of the damages claim until a last-minute delay.
Schools, 44, were allowed to depart the United Kingdom after a tragic traffic accident at RAF Croughton on August 27, 2019, when the US Government claimed diplomatic immunity on her behalf.
The terms of the deal were not revealed. Still, Mr. Seiger said that Harry’s parents, Charlotte Charles and Tim Dunn, would now concentrate their attention on the ongoing criminal prosecution with the civil suit resolved.
“It has come as a great comfort to them that a successful conclusion to the civil action has been achieved between the parties, and they can now leave this phase of the campaign behind them.”
