An inquest has been opened into the death of a 22-year-old man following a fatal collision between Alconbury and Huntingdon last month.

An inquest has been opened into the death of a 22-year-old man following a collision between Alconbury and Huntingdon in March.

Ahmed Salah was the passenger in a red Honda Civic which was involved in a crash on the A14 spur road, half a mile before the Spittals interchange, on Tuesday, March 22.

Cambridgeshire police were called to the incident shortly after 7am following reports that a car had ended up on its roof.

The collision also involved a grey Range Rover.

Paramedics from the East of England Ambulance Service attended the crash but Mr Salah was pronounced dead at the scene.

On Tuesday, March 29, senior coroner for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, David Heming, opened the inquest into the death at Lawrence Court, in Huntingdon.

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.

Anyone with information on the incident should contact the Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire roads policing unit on 101.
