Father killed, 4-year-old son in critical condition

A man was killed after flipping his truck while off-roading near Carbonado. His 4-year-old son was left all night in the Pierce County forest. The man managed to text a friend that he had flipped his truck in the woods, but it is unclear when the friend reported the accident or that the man and his son were missing. When officials found the truck the next morning, the boy and his father were about 100 yards away from the wreckage. The boy lay critically injured, also suffering from hypothermia. He was airlifted by helicopter to the hospital for treatment but remains in serious condition. It is unclear whether the father was killed by his wounds, hypothermia or a combination of factors.
