Mr Heming said a post mortem had determined that Mr Salah, of Manor Park, in London, died of traumatic head injuries.
Following the fatal collision a 21-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of causing death by careless driving and was taken to Thorpe Wood Police Station, in Peterborough.
The man, also from London, was later released on bail until June 6.
The inquest was adjourned while final reports are prepared and is expected to be re-opened again on September 22, when the full hearing will take place.
