A 5-year-old Federal Way boy died and four others were hurt Sunday when a tree fell on an SUV traveling on icy U.S. 101 in Olympic National Park.
Two other children and their grandparents were hurt in the accident along Lake Crescent about 2:15 p.m. The boy died at the scene.
Clallam County medical examiners on Tuesday confirmed the boy’s identity to be Dezman Harper.
The other four members of the family remained hospitalized at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle in critical or serious condition, according to The Peninsula Daily News.

One child had to be cut out of the vehicle by firefighters and one grandparent was airlifted to Harborview.
The tree came down as the family headed home to Federal Way from Clallam Bay.
After being hit by the tree, the SUV slid about 100 feet on the icy, winding road before stopping, Clallam County Fire District No. 2 Chief Sam Phillips told the Daily News on Sunday.
Responders got help from people who stopped to lend a hand.
