ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – A newborn baby and his mother have been taken to a local hospital after the woman gave birth on the side of a Georgia 400.

Ivon Garcia and Jose Francisco, of Alpharetta, were expecting their son to be born in mid-February but Garcia began having contractions Monday morning.

Garcia and Francisco were on their way to Northside Hospital when they had to pull over on the northbound lanes of GA 400 near Interstate 285 so Garcia could give birth.

Medics took the couple from the highway to Northside Hospital, and officials say the woman and her son are both in good condition.
