The incident can lead to a conflict between UK and USA.

The wife of an American diplomat took advantage of diplomatic immunity and escaped from the UK after an accident in which 19-year-old Harry Dunn died.

The death of the young man can cause a diplomatic conflict between the UK and the US, Sky News reports. According to the channel, the American side recommended the diplomat’s wife to leave the country after the fatal accident.

“I called the US ambassador to express the disappointment of the United Kingdom regarding this decision and asked the embassy to review it,” British Foreign Minister Dominic Raab said.

The accident occurred in late August in Northamptonshire, near Crowton Air Base. Dunn crashed on a motorcycle, colliding with a car driving in the oncoming lane. At the wheel of the car was the wife of an American diplomat, whom the British police did not assign the status of a suspect in the young man’s death.
