ROCKY HILL, Conn. (AP) — One person has died and a child has been seriously injured after a three-vehicle crash on a Connecticut highway that sent passengers flying out onto the road.

State police say the child was among two people ejected from one of the vehicles in the wreck on Interstate 91 southbound in Rocky Hill on Tuesday morning. A Jeep flipped onto its side and a child car seat could be seen off the side of the highway.

The child was taken to Connecticut Children’s Medical Center in Hartford.

Police haven’t released the names and ages of the victims, and the cause of the accident is under investigation.

The crash forced the closure of all southbound lanes for nearly three hours. Two lanes have since reopened.
