A12 lorry crash driver Gurdip Johal 'died from haemorrhage'
A lorry driver whose vehicle came off a bridge and crashed on to a dual carriageway died from a haemorrhage due to multiple injuries, an inquest heard.
Gurdip Johal, 30, from Witham, Essex, was killed in the crash on the A12 just north of the town on 8 February.
The opening of an inquest heard he was negotiating a right-hand turn on Coleman's bridge when "for reasons unknown" he went through the barrier.
Mr Johal's death was not deemed to be suspicious. The hearing was adjourned.
The dual carriageway was closed for many hours following the crash to allow emergency services to recover the vehicle and its load - an industrial-sized battery.
Mr Johal's sister, Mandip Kaur, previously described him as "the best brother you could ever ask for".
A full inquest will take place on 17 July.
