Jeffrey Hain, who was 66, his wife Marion, 69 and their 36-year-old son Christopher, all died when their car was involved in a head-on collision with a lorry.
In a statement this afternoon, Norfolk police said: “Officers from the Serious Collision Investigation Team (SCIT) can confirm that they have traced extended family of the couple and son who sadly died in a road traffic collision on the A47 on Wednesday.”
The family were returning home from a holiday in Norfolk to their home in Rochdale, Lancs, when the crash happened on the A47 at East Winch.
Police are still investigating how the Hains’ silver Kia came to collide with the lorry, on a single-carriageway stretch of the road near the Carpenter’s Arms.
Students from Gorleston Sixth Form Centre tried to administer first aid. The A47 was closed for more than six hours after the collision.
Anyone who witnessed the crash or has information relating to it is asked to call the serious collision investigation team on 101.
