Officers are asking the public for assistance in tracing a lorry driver after a fatal crash in south Norfolk.

The accident happened at around 7.45am on July 6 on the A146 at Chedgrave.

It involved a blue Vauxhall Vectra, turning onto the A146, and a Suzuki GSX-R motorbike, travelling along the A146 towards Lowestoft.

The motorcyclist, Jack Samuel Rogers, 25, died at the scene.

The driver of the Vauxhall vehicle suffered hip and facial injuries.

Police are now appealing for information to help trace the driver of a white box lorry.

It’s believed the driver stopped at the scene and spoke to other witnesses following the crash but left prior to the arrival of officers.

Officers believe the lorry driver may have significant evidence concerning the crash.

The driver or anyone who may know them should contact Norfolk police on 101.
