SAN DIEGO—A woman gave birth in an SUV on the side of the road in Kensington on July 10, police said.
At 4:09 a.m. Monday, the pregnant woman—who had been driving herself to the hospital to give birth—pulled over her Toyota SUV on El Cajon Boulevard, said Officer Sarah Foster of the San Diego Police Department.
Paramedics were called to her location at 42nd Street and El Cajon Boulevard, where she was in labor, the officer said.
The baby was born in the SUV, and both the newborn and mother were awake and alert when paramedics took them to the University of California–San Diego Medical Center in Hillcrest, Foster said.
