A Sunderland man has been charged with dangerous driving after an horrific crash on the M6 in which a four-year-old girl died.

The 63-year-old Wearside man was charged by West Midlands Police yesterday (Sunday April 8th) and will appear before Solihull Magistrates Court on Thursday, April 12.

The man  was involved in a five-car pile-up last November that left seven people injured and shut the M6 for several hours.

The four-year-old girl, Priyanka Bhogal, from Coventry, died in hospital after suffering serious injuries in the incident.
