The Crown Prosecution Service will decide whether to bring charges over the death of teenager Preston Fulcher, who was killed in a car crash at Westwick during a police pursuit.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission has been investigating the circumstances that led to the death of the 19-year-old from North Walsham, and has now referred the case to the CPS.
At a review of the inquest into the death, area coroner Yvonne Blake adjourned her inquiry indefinitely to await the response from the CPS.
Mr Fulcher died of head injuries on June 26 last year after being taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital following the collision at around 3am on the Norwich Road at Captain's Pond, near North Walsham.
His family described him as a 'comedian', adding: 'We've lost the most precious, beautiful boy who was fun loving, caring, kind and thoughtful, well-known locally and loved.'
