Karl Plant, of Poppy Close, Loddon, was driving a grey Citroen C1 when he was involved in the fatal collision.

It happened around half a mile north of Thurton on June 25 - two days before Mr Plant was due to celebrate his 40th birthday.

He was pronounced dead at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital and was formally identified by his long term partner, an inquest heard today.

Assistant coroner David Osborne adjourned the hearing until October 22.

Police said the Citroen C1 was travelling towards Beccles when it was involved in a collision with a silver Toyota Yaris, also travelling towards Beccles and a white Ford Transit Tipper travelling towards Norwich.

The Citroen rolled and came to a rest on its roof and sadly the driver, Mr Plant, could not be saved.

Three ambulances, the air ambulance and a paramedic officer had attended.

The busy commuter route was closed for more than five hours.

At the height of the incident there were more than 10 police cars on the scene, with officers manning roadblocks and organising diversion routes.

Thurton is around halfway between Norwich and Beccles, and Loddon is the nearest large village.

Officers are keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the collision or has information concerning the driving manner of either vehicle prior to the incident.

Witnesses should contact PC Shane Schucroft at the Serious Collision Investigation Team (SCIT) on 101.
