Police said the US diplomat was not arrested due to diplomatic immunity, while the vehicle was impounded by Islamabad police.
Seven years back, CIA contractor Raymond Allen Davis sparked a diplomatic storm in Pakistan after shooting dead two young men - Faizan and Faheem - in 'self-defence' at Lahore's Qurtaba Chowk.
A car coming to rescue Davis killed a third man, Ibadur Rahman, in a hit-and-run while speeding on the wrong side of the road on January 27, 2011.
On March 16, the same year, Davis was released after the families of the two killed men were paid $2.4 million as blood money. Judges then acquitted him on all charges and Davis immediately returned to the United States.
