COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - 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.
