Media captionTrump says fatal car crash by diplomat’s wife was ‘accident’

Police have said CCTV of the crash which killed the teenager shows the Volvo travelling on the wrong side of the road.

Speaking after his conversation with the prime minister, President Trump said: “The woman was driving on the wrong side of the road, and that can happen.

“You know, those are the opposite roads, that happens. I won’t say it ever happened to me, but it did.

“So a young man was killed, the person that was driving the automobile has diplomatic immunity, we’re going to speak to her very shortly and see if we can do something where they meet.

“It was an accident, it was a terrible accident.”
