The mother of a teenager killed in a car crash involving a U.S. diplomat’s wife on Tuesday (October 15) said U.S. President Donald Trump held her hand and felt “sincere.”
Charlotte Charles and Tim Dunn spoke to reporters after a White House visit with Trump intended to put pressure on to have American Anne Sacoolas to be sent back to face British investigators.
Harry Dunn, 19, died after a car driven by Sacoolas crashed into his motorbike near RAF Croughton, an air force base in Northamptonshire in central England used by the U.S. military.
Harry Dunn’s parents have also rejected the chance to meet the suspect in their son’s crash death after Donald Trump told them that she was in the room next door at the White House.
Charlotte Charles and Tim Dunn felt “a little ambushed” by the offer made by the US president. Anne Sacoolas, 42, returned to the United States days after the crash which killed 19-year-old Harry.
Harry’s parents said they wanted to meet Mrs Sacoolas in the UK.
