A 63-year-old man has been charged with dangerous driving after a five-vehicle crash on the M6 which killed a four-year-old girl last year, police said.
The man, from Sunderland, will appear before magistrates next week charged with dangerous driving following the collision, which involved five vehicles on the southbound carriageway of the motorway last November, West Midlands Police said.
Four-year-old Priyanka Bhogal, from Coventry, died in hospital after suffering serious injuries when the car she was travelling in was involved in the collision.
Seven other people were also injured in the pile-up, which involved a lorry and several vehicles.
The motorway was closed for more than six hours while emergency services dealt with the incident, which happened between junctions 4a and 4 at around 12.25am on November 27.
The 63-year-old man has been released on police bail and will appear before Solihull Magistrates' Court on Thursday April 12.
