TACOMA, Wash., (UPI) —  The Washington State Patrol said a baby girl was born at the side of the road with the help of her father when the couple couldn’t make it to the hospital.

Troopers said the couple, identified only as the Sanchez family, pulled over to the side of State Route 512 on their way to Madigan Army Medical Center on Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Tacoma Tuesday night and the mother gave birth to a daughter with the help of her husband, KIRO-TV, Seattle, reported Wednesday.
