Microsoft HoloLens Project Designer Killed in Drunk Driving Hit-and-Run

/ 2 years ago


Microsoft’s HoloLens project has a lot of people excited, including the entire staff here at eTeknix. The project has however suffered one of the saddest setbacks it could as one of its project designers was involved in a fatal hit-and-run accident last weekend.

Mike Ey was just 30-years old and described as a caring and reliable person by those who knew him. According to news reports, Mike was hit from behind on State Route 520 in Redmond, WA by a drunk driver. After barely missing another driver with speeds in excess of 100mph the drunk driver rear ended Mike Ey, who died from the injuries. The driver was seen fleeing the scene and arrested by Police shortly after. He is now facing vehicular homicide and felony hit and run charges.

“He was the most reliable person ever. You could ask him anything and he would make sure it got done, whether he knew how to do it or not,” said Kelley Piering, Mike’s girlfriend.

May he rest in peace.
