**UPDATE: The relationship between the female passengers and toddler was confirmed and released by the King County Sheriff’s Office Tuesday.
During the storm Monday, Nov. 13, a 33-year-old woman from Renton was killed when a tree fell across her vehicle while she was driving.
Also in the vehicle at the time was the driver’s sister, 33, and the driver’s toddler daughter.
They were driving in the 15900 block of Southeast 179th Street in unincorporated King County.
Just after 6 p.m. the King County Sheriff’s Office received 911 calls regarding the tree falling onto their vehicle.
According to a release from the Sheriff’s Office, neighbors rushed out to the car and found the tree had fallen directly onto the front of the vehicle.
Neighbors were able to pull the toddler girl out of the back seat and comfort her until medics arrived.
However, they were unable to do anything for the two sisters in the front, the release stated.
When deputies and medics arrived on scene, the driver was pronounced dead.
Crews were able to cut the tree off the vehicle and free the passenger by cutting the roof of the vehicle off.
The release stated the passenger had noticeable injuries to her lower extremities and may also have sustained internal injuries.
The toddler appeared to have no major injuries.
Both victims were transported to Harborview Medical Center.
