Baby Girl Born on Side of Dulles Toll Road

RESTON, Va. (CBSDC) — This child was in a rush. Literally.

Two parents found out first-hand Monday morning just how impatient children can be when they were forced to pull over along a major highway to deliver their newborn baby.

The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority said it received a 911 call just after 7 a.m. Monday from a couple who was pulled over on Dulles Toll Road and expecting to deliver a baby.

When a medical crew from Dulles Airport arrived at the couple’s vehicle on the shoulder of eastbound Dulles Toll Road near Exit 10, a baby girl already had been delivered.

The mother and newborn were taken in an ambulance to nearby Reston Hospital. The father followed in the family’s Honda, which doubled as the delivery room.

Both the mother and newborn are doing fine, officials said.
