More details are emerging about the horrible accident Friday on Whidbey Island, where a Chevy Blazer crossed the center line when, according to police, the driver took off a sweater and asked a passenger to steer.
The Blazer collided with a Subaru Outback wagon driven by Brian Wood, a designer at THQ’s Relic Entertainment studio in Vancouver, B.C. Wood, 33, was senior designer of its “Company of Heroes” franchise.
Wood saw the Blazer coming, braked and swerved slightly, putting himself in the path of the truck and saving his pregnant wife, Erin, according to a moving report published today in the Vancouver Province.
“All the policeman say that if we had hit the car head-on all of us would be dead,” she told the paper.”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.”
