An inquest review is due to take place into the death of a lorry passenger who was killed in an A47 crash.
Mark Rodwell, 47, of West End Lane, New Rossington, Doncaster, died on February 1, 2018, after an accident between two lorries at Scarning near Dereham.
Assistant coroner Jonanna Thompson said Mr Rodwell's cause of death was multiple injuries due to a road traffic collision during the inquest opening.
The accident took place on a straight section of road between the A1075 and A1065, where previous fatal accidents have taken place, at around 8.30am.
Mr Rodwell worked as a driver's mate and was sitting next to the driver of one of the lorries involved in the crash.
The A47 at Scarning was closed for several hours after the accident.
