The family, from Leeds, were on the London-bound carriageway of the A20, at Saltwood, near Hythe, when the crash happened on 29 August.

The boy was pronounced dead at the scene.

The lorry driver and the other people in the Kia, including Mr Mosa, were all taken to hospital with serious injuries.

Mr Mosa has also been charged with four counts of causing serious injury by dangerous driving, Kent Police said.

He is due at Canterbury Magistrates' Court on 13 March.
