LANHAM, Md. (WNEW) — A woman gave birth to a baby on the side of I-270 near Middlebrook Road in Germantown Friday morning.

The baby’s mother and father were on their way to the hospital around 6 a.m., but the infant was apparently eager for its birthday to begin.

Dad called 9-1-1 and then began to help deliver the child. Eventually, EMS personnel arrived and helped out.

After the baby arrived, mother and child were transported to a local hospital. They are doing well, officials say.
