LONDON (AP) — British prosecutors say a court case against an American citizen who left Britain after being involved in a crash that killed a teenage motorcyclist will be heard this week. The Crown Prosecution Service said Monday that there will be a hearing in the case against Anne Sacoolas at London’s Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Thursday. It is an apparent breakthrough in the long-deadlocked case. Sacoolas has been charged with causing death by dangerous driving in the death of 19-year-old Harry Dunn. He was killed in a collision with a car outside an air base in eastern England. Sacoolas returned to the U.S. days later and the American government invoked diplomatic immunity on her behalf.
