Mark Rodwell, 47, of West End Lane, New Rossington, Doncaster, died on February 1 at Scarning near Dereham after a collision involving two lorries.
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.
During today's inquest opening at Norwich's Carrow House, assistant coroner Jonanna Thompson said Mr Rodwell's cause of death was multiple injuries due to a road traffic collision.

One of the lorry drivers involved suffered minor injuries.
Tributes were left, following the days after the accident.
Anyone who may have witnessed the collision, or the manner of driving of either vehicle prior to the incident should contact the Serious Collision Investigation Team on 101.
