Relic Entertainment has lost a team member, whose final moments were spent saving his pregnant wife. The Province reports that Brian Wood, a lead designer at Relic who was working on Company of Heroes, was involved in a fatal car accident. An out-of-control car was heading for a head-on collision, and Wood braked and swerved to take the brunt of the impact himself. His wife Erin, who is due in early November, survived the crash. Officers of the Washington State Patrol say they found evidence of drug use in the other vehicle, and its occupants are known offenders. The two rear passengers of the vehicle, Jacob Quistorf and Francis Malloy, were killed. The driver, Jordyn Weichert and front passenger, Samantha Bowling, are alive. Weichert is being charged with vehicular assault, and Bowling is hospitalized with a pelvic injury while being investigated for the same charges, as she may have taken the wheel. "At the very last second [Brian] braked really hard and turned right so that he would be put in the path of the SUV and not me and the baby, and that is the only thing that saved us both," said Erin Wood. "I am not going to waste the gift he gave us." She called her husband "the most amazing warm-hearted man you would ever meet who loved his job, loved his family, and was just my rock." [/p] Source I'm sorry, but that's really sad. The guy put himself in the way to save his wife and child, and died because of it. What a brave guy. RIP Brian Wood, RIP. EDIT: Minor typo.
