USA diplomat's wife in fatal crash row

A spouse of a USA diplomat has returned to the US after being involved in a deadly crash in the United Kingdom.

The female has been commonly explained across British media as the wife of a US diplomat. Dunn crashed on a motorcycle, colliding with a vehicle driving in the oncoming lane.

The statement said that due to security and privacy considerations, the identity of the individuals involved could not be confirmed. But last night, a spokesman for the family of Mr Dunn told The Mail on Sunday that the husband was actually a senior spy who was working in the United Kingdom using the cover of a diplomatic role. "We have nothing. No justice".

"The U.S. Embassy continues to be in close contact with the appropriate British officials".

Police applied for a waiver of the immunity to pursue the case, but their request was as soon as rejected and so they beget been told she had left the nation, the broadcaster reported, quoting Superintendent Sarah Johnson from Northamptonshire Police.

Johnson said the woman previously had been cooperating fully.

The mother of a Northamptonshire teenager who died in a road crash involving a USA diplomat's wife has said she felt "all hope had gone" when she learned the woman had fled overseas.

Northamptonshire police added they were "working closely with the Foreign & Commonwealth Office" and "exploring all opportunities through diplomatic channels to ensure that the investigation continues to progress".

Charlotte Charles, whose 19-year-old son, Harry was killed in August, has criticised the U.S. embassy for refusing to lift her diplomatic immunity status.

"We don't wish her any ill harm, but we don't understand how she can just get on a plane and leave our family just utterly devastated".

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab has called the United States ambassador in London to ask them to reconsider.

British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said he called U.S. Ambassador Woody Johnson to express the U.K.'s disappointment.

He added that Mr Dunn's parents are hoping to meet with Mr Raab next week.

The US embassy told Sky News that the spouse of a US diplomat assigned to Britain was involved in the accident and had now left the country with her family. "We have nothing. No justice".

Cabinet minister Andrea Leadsom, who is a member of Parliament for South Northamptonshire, called for "proper justice" for Dunn on Twitter on Saturday.

Shadow Secretary of State for Education, Angela Rayner, also commented on Twitter, saying: "This is heartbreaking and nobody can be above the law".
