A 19-year-old man was trying to get out of his crashed car when he was fatally struck by another vehicle, an inquest heard.

Aaron Amis, of The Street, Matlaske, was driving on the A47 from Great Yarmouth towards Norwich on April 6.

His car hit the central reservation at Witton, near Brundall, and when the former Aylsham High student attempted to exit his vehicle he was struck by another vehicle travelling in the same direction.

Norfolk coroner Jacqueline Lake, opening the inquest today, said the medical cause of death was extensive soft tissue and bone injuries due to a road traffic collision.

Mother Carol Amis posted a picture on her Facebook page, with a tribute that read: “This is how I will always remember you Aaron. My lovely caring smiling boy. Love you with every piece of my shattered heart. What I would give to see that smile just one last time.”

Norfolk police said a passenger in the car, named locally as Jonathan Carr, suffered a broken neck and was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.

Mr Carr’s father Glen posted a comment on his Facebook page which said: “We blame no one for what has happened, our deepest thoughts are kept for Aaron’s parents who have a lifetime of pain to deal with, God rest your soul Aaron R.I.P.

“We have been spared the death of our son and are finding that fact very hard to deal with.”

The hearing was adjourned until July 15 for review.
