NOWATA, Okla. (AP) — Oklahoma officials have released the names of a couple and their 4-month-old grandson who were killed when severe weather overturned the couple's mobile home on Friday.

Nowata County Undersheriff Doug Sonenberg (SUN'-in-berg) said Monday the victims are 73-year-old Ronald Inman, 70-year-old Rosella Inman and their infant grandson, Kenadie Inman.

Strong storms erupted Friday as a cold front pushed into the state. Authorities said high winds picked up the Inmans' mobile home, carried it about 100 yards and dropped the wreckage into a creek. The victims' bodies were found in the water after a two-hour search.

A Missouri truck driver also died when wind flipped his semi onto a cement barrier wall, trapping him inside for three hours near Afton in Ottawa County. He was previously identified as 70-year-old Jimmy King.
