An inquest has opened into the death of a shop assistant who fell from a bridge over the A47 near Norwich.
Elizabeth McManus died on October 13 after falling onto the road at Longwater in Costessey.
The 45-year-old, of Foundry Close, Foulsham, near Dereham, was also hit by a vehicle.
Opening her inquest in Norwich on Friday, assistant coroner Johanna Thompson said: 'It appears that she had fallen from the bridge and landed on the carriageway prior to being hit by a vehicle.'
Her provisional cause of death was given as traumatic injury.
A pre-inquest review hearing is scheduled to take place on February 26, 2018.
Following the incident earlier this month, floral tributes were placed at the scene where she died.
