Mr Grant's family have released the following tribute on their behalf:
 
"Twenty-four-year-old Matthew John Grant from Mildenhall sadly passed away following a road traffic accident on 17th July 2015.

"He was a much loved son, brother, uncle and boyfriend. Matthew led a very outgoing and sociable life surrounded by friends and family. His passion in life was motor cross and music. He was well known and loved by all, he's left a massive gap in our hearts and lives that can never be filled. We as a family are deeply sadden by our loss but will continue to keep his memory alive with our lovely times together. Our thoughts go out to all other families involved in this tragic accident."
 
Police are continuing to appeal for any witnesses who may have seen the collision or either of the vehicles prior to the crash. Anyone with any information should contact the Suffolk Serious Collision Investigation team on 101 quoting CAD 415 of July 17.
