McLEAN, Va. — So what do you name a baby boy when he is born on the Capital Beltway? Lane? Myles? Parker? Lupe, perhaps, if you want something a little more abstract?

One mom will get the opportunity after giving birth early Friday morning near the Tysons (Tyson!) Corner exit with an assist from Fairfax County paramedics.

The 27-year-old woman pulled over on the outer loop about 5 a.m. because she was going into labor. Emergency crews arrived to take her to the hospital by ambulance.

But they ran out of time. The ambulance pulled over on the beltway, and paramedics oversaw a healthy delivery.

The county has not released the mother’s name, or the baby’s.
