A family of six were killed by a lorry driver who might have been using a laptop computer for directions as he drove along a motorway, a court heard.
David and Michelle Statham, of Llandudno, north Wales, and their four children died in the crash on the M6 in Sandbach, Cheshire, in October.
Portuguese driver Paulo Jorge Nogueira da Silva, 46, denies six counts of causing death by dangerous driving.
Mr da Silva also denies causing six deaths by careless driving.
The court heard the Statham family was killed instantly when the 40-tonne lorry hit their Toyota Previa people carrier at about 31mph.
