A motorcyclist, originally from the island but living in Fleetwood at the time of death, died at the scene from his injuries.
Trevor Paul Cowell, 56, of Hathaway Road, Fleetwood, Lancashire, died near Guthrie’s Memorial on the Mountain Road on Monday afternoon.
The inquest into Mr Cowell’s death was opened and adjourned by Coroner Jayne Hughes this afternoon at Douglas Courthouse. Mrs Hughes said a report from a paramedic who attended the scene detailed that Mr Cowell has been involved in a ‘head on collision’.
Mrs Hughes also confirmed that Consultant Pathologist Dr Long’s initial finding is that he died as a result of multiple injuries caused by a road traffic collision.
She extended her condolences to Mr Cowell’s family and friends. As investigations are ongoing into the cause of the crash, Mrs Hughes adjourned the inquest to a date yet to be determined.
