Washington in Legal Bid to Hide Work History of Alleged Spy Who Killed Harry Dunn

Anne Sacoolas was driving her Volvo XC90 on the wrong side of the road when she hit 19-year-old motorcyclist Harry Dunn head-on in August 2019, killing him. She promptly fled the UK for the US without informing police, later claiming diplomatic immunity even though her husband was a CIA agent, not a diplomat.

The US government is seeking a legal injunction to prevent civil courts from revealing whether the US woman who killed a British teenager was an intelligence agent as claimed.

Anne Sacoolas was driving her Volvo XC90 on the wrong side of the road when she hit 19-year-old motorcyclist Harry Dunn head-on in August 2019, killing him.

She had just left the RAF Croughton airbase in Northamptonshire, where her Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) operative husband Jonathan worked at a US Air Force listening post on the site.

The “protective order” filed by the US government at a Virginia civil court on Friday sates that “although defendants were employees of the United States government at the time” of the crash, “information concerning the United States government has little to no relevance to an adjudication of any remaining issues in this case”.
