The mother was on her way to the hospital, but the baby boy decided to come out early. Paramedics picked the expectant mother up and started driving toward the hospital when they had to pull over to perform the delivery on the side of the road.

After the infant was born, Warren police escorted the rescue vehicle to Women and Infants Hospital. Fire officials said that both the mom and her newborn are doing well.
