A lorry driver has been sentenced to four-and-a-half years in prison after admitting to causing the death of a child in an M6 motorway pile-up.
Robert Booth, from Sunderland, was sentenced at Warwick Crown Court today (Monday 25 February) after pleaded guilty to causing the death of four-year-old Priyanka Bhogal in a multiple vehicle collision on the M6.
He was also disqualified from driving for five years.
Sergeant Gavin Green, from the Regional Collision Investigation Unit, said: "We are pleased with the sentence today which reflects the severity of Booth’s crime and how seriously the courts view dangerous driving.
"This brings to an end a complex and distressing investigation, which we hope will bring some small consolation to the family of Priyanka, whose lives were shattered by her death."
The lorry driver who killed a young girl in a motorway crash after ignoring speed limit signs has been jailed for four-and-a-half years.
Robert Booth told the court he may have fallen asleep due to obstructive sleep apnoea when his vehicle smashed into slow moving traffic, killing four-year old Priyanka Bhogal.
The girl's father, Joginder Bhogal, said outside court that the sentencing was another milestone in the 'dark days' of their lives.
West Brom manager Steve Clark has said the team is pleased with today's result beating Sunderland 4 goals to 2, meaning the team has now won four consecutive games.
Today's result takes them to third in the Premier League.
