Pregnant wife in hospital.

One of the chief developers at Relic Entertainment died after a car crash involving an allegedly high 21-year-old.

Lead designer of Company of Heroes Online Brian Wood, 33, died after Jordyn Weichert, 21, tried to take off her sweater as she was speeding along a highway near Seattle, according to a report by the Seattlepi (via Kotaku).

Weichert's Chevy Blazer swerved as front-seat passenger Samantha Bowling, 22, held the steering wheel.

Three people died: Two young men riding in the back seat of the Blazer, Jacob Quistorf, 25, and Francis Malloy, 26, and Wood.

Wood's six months pregnant wife, Erin, 31, is in hospital but "in improving condition".

Police said Weichert was under the influence of drugs at the time of the crash, and could be charged with vehicular homicide and vehicular assault.

Bowling also faces a possible vehicular homicide charge when she is released from hospital.
