British prosecutors have charged the wife of an American diplomat over the death of a teenage motorcyclist in a road accident.

British police say Harry Dunn died when he was hit by a car driven by Anne Sacoolas, whose husband was stationed at a U.S. military base in England.

Sacoolas claimed diplomatic immunity and left Britain after the crash. Dunn's family has urged her to return and faced British justice, and met President Donald Trump as part of their campaign.

The Crown Prosecution Service says Sacoolas is being charged with causing death by dangerous driving and extradition proceedings have begun.
