Sad but that's the price all pay for immunity clauses that are approved by the host country. The HOST country approves SOF and immunity agreements as being in their greater interest knowing at the guilty will escape local justice. It's the price we pay that the individual injured party must sometimes pay for a greater good.Another disgusting case where diplomatic immunity is used to escape the consequences of breaking the law.
It is hard to see with your eyes so tightly closed. The NHTSA doesn't use the word "accident" anymore, because they are nearly all preventable by training, attention and preventative maintenance. They are now called "crashes".I don’t see how there was criminal liability there. She was newly in the country and momentarily forgot to drive on the “wrong” side of the road.
It was a tragic accident. Doesn’t a crime require intent?
I believe, in the U.S. this would have been a civil case and handled by insurance.
I've had none other than an Asian woman driving on the wrong side of the road in New Jersey drive right at me as i turned onto the road on the correct side of the road pulling out of a parking lot. It was nuts but kind of funny. Lucky we didnt crash.No personal experience but from my understanding what she did was to pull out of the base and turn right into what would have been her traffic lane in the US but was into oncoming traffic. Which I am told is a very common mistake for US drivers not used to driving in England.
She did?What seems to be overlooked is that she voluntarily returned to England to face justice after being told not to by the US State Department.
hi,My understanding was that she appeared via video conference and that the magistrate explicitly noted that the sentence could not be enforced because she was not present in the country.
