Tragedy family's comfort at speed of care
THE family of a young man killed in a car crash say they take some comfort in the knowledge that emergency services were on the scene within minutes – although nothing could be done to save his life.
Dominic Baker, 21, a former pupil of Sexey's School in Bruton died in a collision on the A371 near Bratton Seymour at around 10.35pm on Thursday, February 28.
He was the son of Clifford Baker, the head lad of top National Hunt trainer Paul Nicholls.
An inquest held on Thursday heard Mr Baker's blue Renault Clio veered off the A371 and into some trees at the side of the road.

Within moments, a paramedic attending another incident passed along the road and was able to assess his condition.
Mr Baker's father told the inquest that learning of the paramedic's almost immediate attendance had brought some comfort to the family.
