SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — A New Mexico woman gave birth in the front seat of a truck as it sped down an icy highway in a snowstorm.
Elizabeth LeFevre gave birth to the 6-pound, 11-ounce girl early Tuesday on Old Las Vegas Highway between Canoncito and Santa Fe, The Santa Fe New Mexican reported (http://bit.ly/rRMAgp ). The family is well enough to go home to Canoncito on Wednesday.
LeFevre said she started having contractions around midnight Tuesday. The pains intensified enough that by 2 a.m., LeFevre, her husband Russell and their 3-year-old daughter loaded into a truck driven by her brother-in-law and headed for the hospital. They took the highway because Interstate 25 was shut down amid blizzard conditions.
