A Bothell couple was killed and their three adult children and son-in-law were injured when a falling tree struck their vehicle on Highway 2 Friday afternoon.
Timothy Desmond Owen, 58, was driving a 1999 Chevrolet Suburban eastbound, about 21 miles west of Leavenworth on Stevens Pass, when a tree fell on the vehicle, according to the Washington State Patrol.
Owen and his wife, 56-year-old Cheryl Janine Reed, both of Bothell, were killed at the scene.
