Relic Entertainment Game Designer, Brian Wood Die In Car Crash

Company of Heroes and Relic Entertainment designer Brian Wood was involved in a terrible car accident last Friday that ended up taking his life, sadly.

In an effort to avoid a head on collision with an SUV moving straight towards the vehicle Wood and his pregnant wife of five years, Erin, were traveling in, Wood steered the wheel of his vehicle so the impact would hit his side instead of the passenger’s side where his wife was siting. This according to The Province.

Here’s Mrs. Erin Woods:

“All the policeman say that if we had hit the car head-on all of us would be dead,” she said. “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.

I am not going to waste the gift he gave us.”

According to the police report, the driver of the SUV was attempting to remove her sweater, and handed over control of the vehicle’s steering wheel to the passenger, hence the accident.

There were two male passengers in the back and they too were killed in the wreck while the passenger sustained a pelvic injury. There were evidence of drug use by the vehicle’s passengers, and all were known to police.

The driver has been charged with three counts of vehicular homicide and one count of vehicular assault, with the passenger who took the wheel expected to face he same charges.

GamesThirst will pray for the wife and children of Brian Woods for the mending of hearts.

It’s a rough time, and we send our sincere condolences to everyone involved. People should never take life simple, after all, a soul never dies.

    what sad news, i hope they find that SUV driver and string them up by their entrails!
    honestly, how dumb do you have to be to try and take off your sweater while driving?

    similar thing happened to me a while ago, i was on my way home and this stupid women plowed into the back of me.
    how could she not see me?
    she said she was reading the text on the back of a sign behind her.
    hey, im just going to drive along a road with my head in the rear view mirror and nothing will happen!
    honestly!
    how can people be so dumb?
    of course your going to crash into something if your not watching where your bloody driving!!!!!!!!!

    you have no idea how many stupid things i have seen people do on the road lately.
    i was on my way to tafe the other day, and this stupid women was on the M4 doing 120KMPH doing her lipstick with her right hand, left hand was the mascara, on the phone and was steering with her knees.
    so i beep at her, so she has the audacity to pull her window down and swear at me!
    i can never go out for a drive without almost having 10 accidents a day!
    i swear to god if they took every single person on the road and made them go for the reds test at least 99.99% of people would fail!
    god, i wish i was a cop, if i was id be a multimillionaire!
    every single day honestly every 5 minutes i see someone doing something ridiculously stupid!
    i wish cops would stop sitting on there fat asses setting up radar traps and start patrolling the bloody roads!
    i use to love driving, it use to be a passion of mine to go out just for the hell of it, go for a relaxing drive.
    now i hate driving for the simple fact it stresses me out more than anything else ever could!
