After traffic stop, Ohio woman gives birth in car

Donna Richmond got pulled over on Tuesday morning as she was trying to rush her daughter to a Columbus hospital

Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ohio — A woman's speeding got her a warning from an Ohio state trooper but wasn't enough to keep her grandchild from being born in her car.

Donna Richmond got pulled over on Tuesday morning as she was trying to rush her daughter to a Columbus hospital. She tells WBNS-TV that the State Highway Patrol officer told her she was going 90 mph.

That's when daughter Debbie Richmond says she screamed from the front passenger seat, "I'm in labor!"

The trooper let them go with the warning. But the delay from the traffic stop kept them from reaching the hospital in time, so Debbie Richmond gave birth to a daughter in her mother's Hyundai.

The father, Randall Altman, says he was in the back seat "freaking out."
