Death of Harry Dunn
Fatal road traffic collision resulting in UK/US diplomatic controversy
Harry Dunn was a 19-year-old British man who died following a road traffic collision, on 27 August 2019. He was riding his motorcycle near Croughton, Northamptonshire, United Kingdom, near the exit to RAF Croughton, when a car travelling in the opposite direction and on the wrong side of the road collided with him. The car was driven by Anne Sacoolas, the wife of Jonathan Sacoolas, a CIA operative living at the United States Air Force listening station at RAF Croughton, who was employed by the CIA in the US. Sacoolas admitted that she had been driving the car on the wrong side of the road, and the police said that, based on CCTV footage, they also believed that was the case. Dunn was pronounced dead at the Major Trauma Centre of John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford.
The parents of Harry Dunn have reached a "resolution" with the teenager's alleged killer in a civil claim for damages in the US.
