  • Chad was also driving a non diplomatic number plate car

A U.S. Embassy vehicle driven by Col. Joseph Emanual Hall, defense and air attaché, killed a Pakistani motorcyclist and injured another in Islamabad on April 7.

The vehicle was being driven by US Embassy Second Secretary Chad Rex Ausburn.

Alice Wells, a senior State Department official, visited Islamabad to discuss the case with senior Pakistani officials, but the diplomatic tussle remains unresolved and ties between the two countries appear increasingly frayed. According to police, American diplomat had been taken into custody after the accident.

The jeep of the US embassy official, Embassy's Second Secretary Chad Rex Ausburn, crashed into the motorcycle Sunday night, near Shahrah-e-Dastoor.

Police also filed a case against the chief security officer of the USA embassy in Islamabad, Taimoor Pirzada, for attacking and misbehaving with personnel following the accident. Case has been registered. Several people took to social media to protest against the favourable treatment given to the U.S. diplomat.

"Justice will take its course in accordance with the law of the land and the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, 1961", said a press release by Pakistan's Foreign Office. The deceased family had since petitioned the High Court, asking that the diplomat's name be placed on the Exit Control List. In February 2013, an administrative assistant at the United States embassy also hit two motorcyclists with his Land Cruiser near Kohsar Complex at Margalla Avenue. One was killed and the other was seriously injured.

In November 2010, a member of the US Regional Affairs Office hit another embassy's vehicle causing damage to both vehicles at Shahrah-e-Jamhuriat near Radio Pakistan. He says the motorcyclists were at fault in the accident.
