She heard from police coroner officer Colin Price that Mr Scollins, a forklift truck driver, died in Salford Royal Hospital on August 8.

He added there were no concerns over the identity of the deceased man.

Ms Mutch then adjourned the hearing to allow ongoing police investigations to take their course. “A Greater Manchester Police’s serious collision investigation is underway,” she said. “That investigation is still underway [and] in view of that, we have to await the outcome.”

She has set a provisional date of April 8, 2022 for the full inquest, dependent on police enquiries. Following the crash earlier this month, several bouquets of flowers were left at the scene paying tribute to Kieran, who was born in Manchester. One note read: “Kieran.

Gone too soon. Fly high love Kelly and family.” Other messages included: “Night outs will never be the same.

We will miss you forever mate,” and “heartbroken that you left me but I hope you’re in a better place.”
