Baby born on freeway during wintry Ga. traffic jam

SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. (AP) — Police in suburban Atlanta say they helped deliver a baby girl on a local freeway when snow and ice brought traffic to a crawl.

Sandy Springs Police Capt. Steve Rose says the baby girl was delivered around 5:20 p.m. Tuesday and it's unclear if her parents were headed to the hospital when they got stuck in the traffic jam.

Traffic came to a halt in some areas as many ended their workdays early and tried navigating slippery highways throughout the region.

Rose called the delivery "flawless" and said it happened without any complications.

Rose says an ambulance arrived just after the baby was delivered and the girl was taken to a local hospital. The parents' identities have not been released and it's unclear which hospital the girl was taken to.
