BRITAN (AP) — The British government said Friday it had formally asked for Anne Sacoolas to be extradited to face a charge of causing death by dangerous driving.
The U.S. State Department called the request “highly inappropriate” because Sacoolas had diplomatic immunity at the time of the crash.
Nineteen-year-old Harry Dunn died in August after his motorbike collided with a car driven by Sacoolas. That incident happened outside a British military base used by U.S. forces.
Sacoolas, whose husband was stationed at the base, returned to the U.S. Soon afterward.
