"He left to go get my birthday cake like he did every year. Then, the phone rang, there was an accident. Drunk driver ran through red light, head-on collision. "
Laurel Lance to Quentin [src]

An unnamed man was the father of Laurel Lance.


On his daughter's thirteenth birthday, the man went to get her a birthday cake, as he did annually, but was killed in a car accident collision by a drunk driver who passed a red light and rammed his car into him.[1]


It is implied that this man's tragic death was one of the events that prompted Laurel's eventual descent into supervillainy, as it left her to grow up without a father. Her sentiment for his doppelgänger however ultimately led to her redeeming herself years later.
