North Van dad-to-be's final act saves family

His name was Brian Wood, and I felt that his final act was rather impressive so I wanted to share it around. I don't know if the result was really by design or if he was trying to avoid the other car but was unsucessful, but if it was a fast calculation or instintual response he sacrified himself for his wife and child, and I think thats touching and worthy of note.

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.
Rest in peace Brian.

A brave and talented individual. Brian was a lead developer of Company of Heroes, so it's a tragic loss for the video game industry as well - Company Of Heroes Developer Killed In Car Accident

wow, I didn't realise thanks for informing us Spartan. It makes me sad that I'll still get to enjoy something he created when he had so much of his life to live.

That sounds like a typical reaction to an oncoming collision to me. I think the bit about 'sacrificing' himself to save them is a bit wishful thinking. People try to find grand things out of loved ones deaths, I think this is one of those.

I wrote up a long response to this, but decided not to post it as I was not happy with it. I will however say that I do not think Humans are 'grand'.

Wauw! I didnt know. I read before that he was killed in a car accident. But this is impresses me even more.

They say that the girl who hit them was under influence... They lost 2 people in that car as well...
