NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — A baby doesn’t wait for traffic.

That’s why a newborn girl was delivered in a car on Interstate 64 in Virginia on Monday, according to Virginia Department of Transportation.

The baby was born at the 15th View Street inspection station at 10 p.m. VDOT says grandma was behind the wheel while mom was a passenger in the front seat.

“There was slight panic in the air,” Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel Crew Leader Brian Williamson said.

Williamson said he responded from the south island of the HRBT and by the time he got there, the baby had already been delivered.

Both mom and baby are doing fine. The newborn was healthy, breathing and “screaming and yelling,” Williamson said.
