Accident Black Spot: Car filmed driving on wrong side of road near RAF base near where Harry Dunn died
A police chief has asked to meet the commander of the RAF base near where Harry Dunn died, to discuss cars being driven on the wrong side of the road.
Mr Dunn, 19, was hit by a car driven by Anne Sacoolas, who left for the US claiming diplomatic immunity. A Video has now emerged of a car being driven on the wrong side of the road near RAF Croughton on Friday night.
A statement from Northamptonshire Chief Constable Nick Adderley said these events “cannot keep happening”. A police vehicle was also struck by a car on the wrong side of the same road in October, it has been revealed.
The footage that was captured on Friday shows a blue BMW having to brake sharply on a road near the base. It was also noted that the car had DIPLOMATIC plates!
In the statement, the chief constable said: “I do not underestimate how much of a concerning incident this was and how much worse it could have been, especially considering the circumstances in which 19-year-old Harry Dunn tragically died.
“This is compounded by the fact that yesterday, myself and Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner Stephen Mold were made aware of another incident in Northampton in which a police vehicle was struck in early October by a vehicle also driving on the wrong side of the road.
“Thankfully, there were no injuries.
“I want to be absolutely clear on the fact that these incidents just cannot keep happening.”
He said he had requested a meeting with officials from the base to discuss road safety and that he expected it to take place next week.
The Dunn family spokesman, Radd Seiger, said watching the footage made him feel sick.
