A man has been charged with causing the death of a teenager in a collision nine years ago.
Zahid Masood, 47, from Heron Way, Rochester appeared in court on Saturday charged with causing death by dangerous driving and perverting the course of justice.
It follows a collision on the M25 near junction 4 on November 3, 2003, in which Charlotte Smoker, a 19-year-old air hostess from Hertfordshire, died a day later from her injuries.She was driving a red Fiat Cinquecento.
Police are appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the incident to come forward.
Det Sgt Scott Lynch from Kent Police’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit said: "This collision may have occurred nine years ago but we have been actively investigating it throughout that time.
"I would like to urge anyway who didn't come forward at the time and remembers the collision to come forward. They still may hold vital information."
Anyone with information can call the Kent Police's witness line on 01622 798538 quoting reference YY/007673/12.
Masood, who has been remanded in custody, will appear at Maidstone Crown Court on November 19.
