Officers have appealed for witnesses or dashcam footage following the crash, in which a man in his 50s, who was driving a grey Ford Ranger, died.

The Ford and a blue curtain-side trailer collided on the A149, at the junction with Old Market Road, Stalham, at about 8.30am on Friday, August 14.

Police have revealed a third car, a Mercedes C-Class, was also damaged after taking avoiding action as a result of the crash, colliding with debris.

The road was closed in both directions, but was reopened later that evening.

The crash happened near the main entrance to the town’s Tesco superstore, opposite the petrol station.

Norfolk Fire and Rescue sent three appliances to the scene from Stalham, Wroxham and Gorleston. Ambulance crews also rushed to help, but the driver of the Ford was pronounced dead at the scene.

A Norfolk Constabulary spokesman said: “Police are keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the collision or were travelling in the area and may have relevant dashcam footage.
