The Tragic Death of Brian Wood

Posted Sep 13, 2010 by Suzie Ford

The Tragic Death of Brian Wood

Relic Entertainment's Brian Wood was tragically killed in an automobile crash on September 8th. As Wood and his wife were driving down the road, he observed an out of control vehicle coming at them head on. Knowing a collision was inevitable, he swerved so that his side of the vehicle would take the brunt of the impact. The result of his action saved the life of his wife and unborn child. The other vehicle's driver was taking off her sweater and had turned the wheel over to a passenger.

The first thing Erin Wood wants her baby to know is that Dad, Brian, died to save their lives.

“. . . In his final act he did the only thing that would save us,” said Wood, 31.

With an out-of-control Chevy Blazer bearing down on him, the 33-year old North Vancouver man braked and swerved his Subaru wagon so that he would take the force of the head-on collision, saving his wife of five years, pregnant with their first baby..

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