The parents of a British teen killed in a road crash involving an American diplomat's wife met with President Donald Trump at the White House Tuesday to urge that she be returned to Britain to face justice.

Charlotte Charles and Tim Dunn said that Trump dropped "the bombshell soon after we walked in the room: Anne Sacoolas was in the building and was willing to meet with us".

ABC News has reached out to Dunn's family for comment.

Harry Dunn, 19, was killed in August when his motorcycle collided with a vehicle allegedly driven by Sacoolas outside a British air force base in southern England used by the US military.

Charles said she asked Mr. Trump who allowed Sacoolas to return to the USA, but did not get an answer to the question.

"You have to be accountable, you don't just get on a plane and flee justice", he said.

Dunn's parents have been pressing for Sacoolas to return to Britain. I believe it was going down the wrong way because it happens in Europe.

"She was next door".

Family spokesman Radd Seiger described the White House meeting as "absolutely extraordinary" and "unprecedented".

Mr Dunn, 19, died near RAF Croughton in Northamptonshire on 27 August.

Dunn, 19, was killed August 27 when Sacoolas' Volvo struck his motorcycle head-on while she drove on the wrong side of a Northamptonshire road, authorities allege.

Ms Sacoolas was interviewed by police about the deadly incident but flew back to the USA after claiming diplomatic immunity.

It was given the name " Oumuamua ", which in Hawaiian means a messenger from afar arriving first. The object, a comet named C/2019 Q4 (Borisov), was recently sighted by the Minor Planet Center .

He said the matter was now "in the hands" of Northamptonshire Police and the Crown Prosecution Service.

Earlier on Tuesday, her attorney, Amy Jeffress, released a statement expressing remorse for the tragedy.

That was a tragic accident, but what happened next was a decision made by multiple people.

Asked about her apology, he said: 'Frankly, it's not worth the paper it is written on.

He added that a mother-of-three, Sacoolas wants to meet Dunn's parents to "apologise and take responsibility".

She said that emotionally it would not be good for her, her husband or for Sacoolas to meet on such short notice, without therapists or mediators present. After providing a statement at the scene and meeting officers the next day, she had no further contact with the police, Jeffress said.

"At the end of the meeting, we all shook hands, and I ended up at the back of our little family queue and President Trump actually grabbed hold of my hand".

Speaking after the meeting on Tuesday, the family's spokesman, Radd Seiger, said it had been the president's intention for the family to meet Sacoolas in the Oval Office in front of several photographers, "in what was obviously created to be a press call".

Through her lawyers, Sacoolas has said she is "devastated" and is willing to meet Dunn's family.

Trump told the parents that Sacoolas would not be extradited to the Britain, according to the report.

"He said yes, yes I would", she said, adding that Trump then said he would try to look at the case "from another angle" although Dunn's parents say they are unsure as to what exactly that means. The family felt a "bit rushed". "We feel a little numb".
