BOSTON — State troopers moonlighting as midwives helped deliver a baby girl off I-93 in Quincy in the pre-dawn hours yesterday.

A Plainville man racing down I-95 to Brigham and Women's Hospital with his pregnant wife called 911 at 2:30 a.m. and told state police that the number of females in the car looked like it was going to double too quickly to make it.

Trooper Scott Walker of the Milton Barracks spotted the vehicle on Interstate 93 and told the desk sergeant to have the expectant couple exit at Furnace Brook Parkway in Quincy . . . and to get Fallon Ambulance there ASAP.
