On August 27, 2019, the 45-year-old driver struck Mr. Dunn’s motorcycle outside a US military base in Northamptonshire while traveling on the incorrect side of the road.
On Thursday, family members of the Dunns were present at the Old Bailey as Sacoolas, appearing through a video link from America, pleaded guilty to causing death by careless driving.
Behind the barristers were parents Charlotte Charles and Tim Dunn, who had spectators in the public gallery wearing lime green ties and scarves.
Sacoolas was asked to travel to the UK for the hearing as a sign of repentance by Mrs. Justice Cheema Grubb, who postponed the sentencing until late November.

Collision of Anne Schoolas with Harry Dunn
On the evening of August 27, 2019, Harry Dunn, a resident of Charlton near Banbury, was riding his motorbike on the B4031 road around 400 yards (370 m) from the exit of RAF Croughton when he was hit by a car.
The vehicle’s driver was Anne Sacoolas, a former US spy and the spouse of a CIA agent stationed at RAF Croughton’s US Air Force listening post.
Police asserted that they thought the Volvo XC90 had left the base exit driving on the wrong side of the road, which Sacoolas later acknowledged.
In 2006, Sacoolas received a traffic ticket in the US state of Virginia for “failure to pay full time and attention.”
According to the BBC, the Sacoolas family had just been in the UK for three weeks. Dunn’s injuries were classified as category two by call takers for the emergency phone call, requiring a medical response within 40 minutes.
The ambulance arrived 43 minutes after the crash. Later, the chief executive of East Midlands Ambulance Service claimed that the classification was irrelevant due to a crew shortage because the patient’s closest doctor was miles away.
Dunn was declared dead at Oxford’s John Radcliffe Hospital’s Major Trauma Center. On September 17, a funeral was held before being cremated at a crematorium in Oxfordshire.
