I’d call the local humane society and get their advice or call your vet/local emergency vet.

Unfortunately it sounds like it may have been hit.  If they can’t help it, they’ll be able to euthanize it so it doesn’t have to die slowly 🙁

Maybe try finding a number for your state or county’s wildlife department. Or are there any local zoos or wildlife parks near by?

Are there any other humane societies near you? poor turtle!!

humane societies accept some pretty weird things… I know my cousin brought an injured turtle there once and they took it!

Someone may have stepped on him 🙁

Can you take him to a local vet? He probably will need to be euthanized but much better than let him suffer. I ‘m sure you wouldn’t catch any diseases if you just transport him in a cardboard box.

Omg, that’s so sad… I love turtles! I remember when one wandered into our backyard we were told to call the Fish and Game Department. But if it’s injured that might be different. It doesn’t sound good though… :*(

What about calling animal control?  

If its cracked it probably was hit by a car but I don’t know if they can fix him with a broken shell.
