INOLA, OK -- We now know the names of the victims killed in deadly crash on U.S. Highway 412 Wednesday afternoon. 

The accident happened just after 2 p.m. just west of Inola. 

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol identifies the victims as 28-year-old Kenan Leggett, 4-year-old Hailey Leggett and 2-year-old Michaela Leggett.

The Patrol says Kenan Leggett's SUV was eastbound when it moved into the left lane, passed another vehicle, then moved back into the right lane.

Troopers say for an unknown reason Leggett's vehicle then moved onto the shoulder where it hit the back end of a parked tractor trailer. 

The driver of the truck was not hurt.

Troopers say Leggett was wearing a seatbelt and the children were buckled into car seats.

The OHP also says the airbag in Leggett's SUV deployed.
