A 27-year-old Perth man has been charged with manslaughter over the death of a 19-year-old woman in a car crash at Brigadoon, northeast of the city, in November.

The woman died when the driver of a Holden Commodore lost control and his car rolled multiple times before coming to rest in a paddock.

She was a rear seat passenger but was thrown from the vehicle and died in Royal Perth Hospital.

The driver is due to appear before Midland Magistrates Court on January 22.
