Crash victim had cocaine in his blood

A MAN who died when his motorbike collided with a Post Office van in Henley had traces of cocaine in his blood, an inquest heard.

Michael Jiggens, 41, of Memorial Avenue, Shiplake, died at the scene of the crash in Wargrave Road on May 9 last year.

He suffered multiple internal injuries when his red Kawasaki Z1000 motorbike collided with the van at about 12.30pm.

Land and air ambulance crews attempted to resuscitate Mr Jiggens but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

The inquest in Windsor on Wednesday heard how the van driver, postman Dominic Bool, had been pulling out of a private driveway to turn right on to Wargrave Road towards Henley when the collision happened.
