A 6-year-old Meriden boy has died after he was thrown from a pickup truck that rolled over on Interstate 91 in North Haven on Christmas morning.

A woman driving on the southbound side of the highway lost control of the truck and slid into the median, rolling over several times before coming to rest in the northbound lanes near exit 12, according to state police.

The 6-year-old, identified as Noah McCoy, was one of three children in the truck at the time.  He was ejected and rushed to the hospital with serious injuries.

On Thursday police said the child died of his injuries.

McCoy was not not in a child seat or using a seat belt, police said.

The northbound lanes of the highway were shut down from around 9:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m.

The driver and the other two children, ages 13 and 11, were taken to the hospital to be checked out for minor injuries.
