Toddler in hospital with skull, other fractures

Lexington police have not determined what caused injuries, including a skull fracture, that sent a small boy to the hospital early Wednesday.

“It may be a little bit of time before they have all this figured out,” Lexington police spokeswoman Ann Gutierrez said on Thursday.

Lexington police received a report about an unresponsive infant about 12:15 a.m. Wednesday from Allante Brook Court, in south Lexington off Wilson-Downing Road. He lives with his mother and her boyfriend.

The boy was taken to University of Kentucky Hospital. On Thursday, Gutierrez said that police had not been updated on the child’s condition.

She said police are trying to find out who had access to the child before he was hurt. Investigators are also waiting for more information from doctors about nature of the injuries.

The boy’s name has not been released.
