Five people, a two-year-old girl, two boys aged five and seven, a 38-year-old woman and a 35-year-old man were travelling in the VW Tiguan at the time of the crash.

The two-year-old girl was found unconscious after being pulled from the car by a lorry driver who stopped to help.

She was taken to Birmingham Children's Hospital with the two boys.

The woman was taken to the major trauma centre at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham with the man, believed to be the driver.

A man in his 20s, who was pronounced dead at the scene, was driving alone in the Honda Civic.
