Spring Hill Officer Andrew Peterson pulled over the couple on U.S. 169 in eastern Kansas, police said. The father, David Grate, got out of the car and told Peterson that his wife was giving birth.

The officer then helped the new mother, Charlotte, with the birth of the baby boy, Matthew.

Peterson wrapped the newborn in his jacket until paramedics arrived.
