LONDON — The family of a 19-year-old British motorcyclist has reached a resolution with the U.S. State Department employee who fatally struck him with her car two years ago, the latest development in a case that touched off diplomatic tensions between Britain and the United States.
A spokesman for the family of the teenager, Harry Dunn, said the two parties had reached an agreement in a lawsuit filed by the family.
“It’s a milestone for us that we’ve achieved a resolution in the civil case,” the spokesman, Radd Seiger, said.
“We can now look forward and focus on the criminal case, which we are very confident is coming soon.” He declined to disclose any details of the settlement.
Anne Sacoolas, the American State Department employee, had been driving on the wrong side of the road in August 2019 near the village of Croughton, in central England, when she hit Mr. Dunn, who died at a hospital shortly after the accident.
