AN inquest into the death of Christie Joe Couzens, who died in a collision near Littleport last week, has been opened by the coroner.

The 22-year-old, of Parsons Lane, Littleport, was riding his motorcycle along Branch Bank shortly before 6pm on May 25 when he was involved in a collision with a Volkswagen.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Two women from Burwell who were in the Volkswagen were treated at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, in Cambridge, for their injuries.

The coroner for North and East Cambridgeshire William Morris opened and adjourned an inquest into the 22-year-old’s death on Tuesday. The cause of death was listed as multiple injuries.

More than 100 people joined a group on social networking site Facebook in memory of Christie, with dozens also leaving flowers and cards at the scene of the accident.
