"It was an accident, a bad accident".

The two leaders also discussed the tragic death of Harry Dunn.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson urged Trump to force the woman identified as Anne Sacoolas to return to face questioning by authorities.

"We're going to speak to her and see what we can come up with so that there can be some healing".

British police say the 42-year-old woman is a suspect in an August 27 collision between a vehicle and a motorcycle near RAF Croughton, a British military base in England used by the U.S. Air Force.

The President said he was fully aware of the case and deeply saddened by what has happened, and he expressed his condolences to Harry's parents.

U.K. Foreign & Commonwealth Office sources confirmed to TIME that U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had a discussion with U.K. Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, but they declined to discuss the detail of that conversation.

Northamptonshire Police Superintendent Sarah Johnson confirmed in a statement on october 5 that the suspected driver, a 42-year-old American woman, left the country despite telling the police she had no plans to leave the country in the near future.

The US president replied to a tweet by "Twitter Moments" which claimed that the White House said Ankara will be moving forward with its incoming operation and will take responsibility for all Daesh fighters they capture.

"There is tremendous anger and I understand it". "That happens. I will not say it ever happened to me, but it did".

The U.S. woman involved in the crash later left Britain, invoking diplomatic immunity.

"She needs to come back and see what she's done", Charlotte Charles, the teen's mom, told NBC News on Saturday, fighting back tears.
