The Franklin County Coroner has released the name of a 2-year-old boy killed in a car crash Tuesday night.

Police said the toddler, Jair Gutierrez, was not wearing his seatbelt when he was thrown from the back seat of a Ford Explorer. Police said the SUV was on I-64 in Franklin County just before 9 p.m. when a tire blew out, and the SUV hit a rock wall.

Investigators said the boy's father was behind the wheel, and his mother was in the passenger's seat. Police said the parents are at UK hospital in fair condition.

Police say no one was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash, and said two other people in the backseat refused treatment.
