The accident happened at around 7.45am on July 6 and involved a blue Vauxhall Vectra, turning onto the A146, and a Suzuki GSX-R motorbike, travelling along the A146 towards Lowestoft.

The motorcyclist, Jack Samuel Rogers, 25, known as ‘Jacko’, died at the scene.

In a statement his mother said: “My family and I never imagined this day would come.

“As a family we would like to express our thanks for all the support given to us in our time of heartbreak.

“Jack was an amazing soul who we can’t imagine being without. We will celebrate his life forever.”

At an inquest held on Wednesday, July 12, senior coroner for Norfolk, Jacqueline Lake, recorded the cause of death as multiple injuries due to a road traffic collision.

Mrs Lake said that at the time of his death the digger driver was living at New Inn Hill in Rockland St Mary.

His dad Trevor Rogers said: “I know that Jack will be remembered with a smile by many that he met. He was a popular young man.

“I have had lots of messages of support in this awful time. He was a very special character and leaves us with many happy memories to treasure.”

The female driver of the Vauxhall vehicle suffered hip and facial injuries and was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital for treatment.

Police, two ambulance crews and an ambulance officer were sent to the scene.

Members of the public have since been laying messages and floral tributes to the motorcyclist where the incident occurred

The collision caused major delays with drivers diverted through Loddon.

A full inquest into the death of Mr Rogers will be held at Norfolk Coroner’s Court on Thorpe Road, Norwich, on January 30, 2018.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the incident, and anyone who may have witnessed the collision, has dash cam footage or may have seen the driving manner of either vehicle, should contact the Serious Collision Investigation Team on 101.
