Andrew Nimmo, 24, of Murton, died after the lorry he was driving collided with an HGV and a Ford Focus beside the slip road from the A1130 Mandale Roundabout in Stockton, Teesside, on August 6 last year.

The driver of the Ford Focus Zetec, a 37-year-old woman, was taken to James Cook University Hospital with fractures to her legs.

She was found lying in the road by North East Ambulance Service.

The couple had only recently returned from a family holiday to Tunisia.
