Man charged over Charlotte Smoker M25 road death

A 47-year-old man has been charged with causing the death by dangerous driving of a Hertfordshire air steward in a crash on the M25 nine years ago.

Charlotte Smoker, 19, of Bishop's Stortford, was injured when her car hit the central reservation in Kent and then collided with another vehicle.

She died in hospital on 4 November 2003, a day after the crash.

Kent Police said Zahid Masood, of Heron Way, Rochester, had been charged with causing death by dangerous driving.

Ms Smoker was driving towards the Dartford Crossing, on the anti-clockwise carriageway of the M25, when the crash happened close to junction 4.

The force said Mr Masood, who also faces a charge of perverting the course of justice, appeared at Medway Magistrates' Court on Saturday and was remanded in custody.
