Amal Prasad Sandhya was a front seat passenger in a Toyota Corolla when it was involved in the collision on the A14 westbound near to Creeting St Mary.

Emergency services had been called to the crash around 4.50am on April 2.

The 25-year-old from Norwich, who was born in India on January 6, 1996, suffered fatal injuries and died at the scene at 5.15am, an inquest opening at Suffolk Coroner's Court heard on Friday, August 27.
