Seriously, When you're driving FOCUS on driving!

Brian Wood of Relic Entertainment Gave His Life to Save His Family


Relic Entertainment's Brian R. Wood gave his life to save the life of his wife and unborn child. His final moments came at the hands of a speeding female driver, Jordyn B. Weichert, as her Chevy Blazer struck Wood's Subaru, driving on top of it and killing Brian instantly.

Brian's wife, Erin Wood, escaped the accident with a non-life threatening head injury thanks to Brian's final actions. Right before the moment of impact, Brian hit the break and cut the wheel and directed the brunt of the impact upon his side of the vehicle, sparing the life of his wife and unborn child.

A Chevy Blazer, with four occupants, crossed the centre line when the driver tried to take her sweater off while driving, asking the other front passenger to take the wheel at the time.

When Wood braked and swerved slightly, the Blazer continued forward, its momentum driving it over top of the Subaru, the wheels crushing the roof of the smaller car killing Wood and causing his wife to suffer a non-life-threatening head injury as well.

It then launched into the air before crashing to the ground. When it was returned to its wheels, the entire upper portion of the SUV was flat - in line with the hood.

Washington State Patrol found evidence of drug use at the accident scene in the SUV. All of the occupants are well know to police.

"There is quite a drug history there... and we found some evidence of that at the scene so that leads us to believe there were drugs in their systems," said Sgt, Jason Longoria.


Two of the three passengers in the SUV were also killed in the accident. The driver of the SUV, Weichert, is being held on charges of three counts of vehicular homicide and one count of vehicular assault. The third passenger, the one who grabbed the wheel as Weichert attempted to remove her sweater, is being investigated for the same charges.

"He was always sacrificing himself for me and the baby," said Erin Wood.

"He was the most amazing warm-hearted man you would ever meet who loved his job, loved his family, and was just my rock.

"I am not quite sure how I am supposed to live the rest of my life without him. He truly was a gift and I wouldn’t change a thing of any of our moments together.

"(The baby is) due Nov. 5 so it will come quick and then I look forward to seeing little glimpses of Brian in our baby and that gives me a lot of strength right now."


My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Brian and the Wood family.

Really sad story...it always sucks when the person who is responsible doesn't die...

On a side note...I can't picture what he did to save his family...I can't imagine him turning the car so he could get the impact...was it head on? Rear ended?

Moments before the ''head on collision'' was about to take place it appears he cranked the wheel HARD to the right, putting his driver side as the initial contact point, sparing his family..

Now that's a ****ing GOOD man. He proved what kind of man he was. I hope that if I'm ever in this situation this is what I do for my wife to be.

I feel awful for the family (wife/kid) and I hope the driver survived... maimed and has to live with the guilt for the rest of her life. Death is too easy a cop out for a tragedy like this.

Good man in his professional life as well as personal. RIP Brian Wood.

The hell with the idiots in that SUV. I like the tidbit on how they are well know drug users to the local PD, then what the hell are they doing on the streets? I bet they were tried and let go because of some stupid plea bargain prior to this accident.

I hope both get convicted! ****ing idiots, excuse my typing, but I have no better words.



RIP Brian Wood, God has a place for you for what you sacrificed.


My thoughts and prayers go out to Erin Wood and child. Hopefully they'll be blessed even more so after this.

What a horrible tragedy. Prayers going out for the surviving family - it's gonna be tough carrying on after something like this.

It has become much too easy for almost any jackass to get behind the wheel of a vehicle.

As for the responsible parties? All I will say is they really need to bring back public corporal punishment. When idiots are made the fools that they are in front of a town circle, often they would rather not show themselves again, or at least not until they have undergone a striking reformation.

Some people really should not be allowed to breed.
