An inquest has been permanently suspended following the sentencing of a driver who caused a fatal crash involving a police pursuit through a maize field. 

Aisatou Mballow-Baldeh, 28, from Lowestoft, was killed when a stolen Land Rover crashed into her Nissan Juke in Earsham, near Bungay, on August 13 last year.  

The crash happened when Marcin Jablonski, 44, tried to escape from police through the field of 6ft (1.83m)-high maize. 

Driving back on to the road, he lost control of the vehicle and crashed into the Nissan travelling in the opposite direction.   

Mrs Mballow-Baldeh died at the scene.  

Paying tribute, her husband Bocar said: "Aisa was my wife, my best friend, and my soul mate. 

"We had so many plans for our future together that now, we will not be able to fulfil, and this is something I’m still struggling to come to terms with.    

"Aisa will be missed by so many people.    

"Our families, friends and I will forever keep her in our hearts and remember the beautiful and vibrant person we love and cherish."    

During a recent pre-inquest review at Norfolk Coroner’s Court, senior coroner Jacqueline Lake said the matter had now been dealt with by Norwich Crown Court.    

She added: “Having considered the evidence heard at Crown Court, I am satisfied that the evidence has been heard to enable me to answer all the required questions. 

“On that basis, I do not propose to resume the inquest and permanently suspend it.”   

 Mrs Mballow-Baldeh's medical cause of death was given as “traumatic brain injury”. 

Jablonski admitted causing death by dangerous driving and other offences and was jailed for 12 years. 

His son and passenger, Thomaz Urbaniak, 26, was jailed for two years after admitting aggravated vehicle taking and burglary of a commercial premises.
