Trib­ute to tragic dad after crash

Manchester Evening News - - CITYLIFE -

THE wife of a ‘lov­ing’ fa­ther who died fol­low­ing a crash in Bolton has paid trib­ute to him.

Kelvin Baker, 35, died after the black Audi he was trav­el­ling in crashed in Black­burn Road, Eger­ton, at 3am on Sun­day morn­ing.

Po­lice said the black Audi left the road then mounted the pave­ment be­fore hit­ting a stone wall.

Mr Baker, from Dar­wen, and three oth­ers were taken to hospi­tal with se­ri­ous in­juries but, de­spite paramedics’ best ef­forts, he died a short time later from his in­juries.

His wife, Si­mone, said: “I can’t be­gin to ex­plain the hurt and empti­ness that I feel.

“I have lost my soul mate, my best friend, my other half.”
