1 dead, 2 injured after tree falls on auto near Renton

One person died and two more were injured when a tree fell on a vehicle near Renton on Monday, according to the King County Sheriff's Office.

At Whidbey Island north of Seattle, where the video was recorded, wind gusts of around 60 miles per hour were recorded at a ferry terminal.

Kitsap Transit canceled its fast-ferry service between Bremerton and Seattle because of high winds, and King County Metro and Snohomish County Community Transit warned that bus service into Seattle was delayed.

A tree fell on a vehicle in the Seattle suburb of Renton, killing the woman, who was in her 30s, and critically injuring her sister, according to the King County Sheriff's Office.

It is the first and so far only reported death caused by the strong winds and torrential rain that slammed western Washington on Monday, knocking down power lines and leaving more than 150,000 customers without electricity in the Seattle area. A 2-year-old child who was in the backseat was OK, the sheriff's office said.

A wind warning was also issued by the weather service for Washington's coastal areas and the north interior with a forecast of 30 to 40 miles per hour winds and gusts of up to 65 miles per hour, according to Gaebel.
