White Ridge, CO (KDVR) -

A Colorado couple had no choice but to deliver their child on the side of the road during rush hour traffic on Monday.

The family, who was on their way to a nearby hospital, decided they had only moments to react and decided to call the hospital for help while delivering in the car.

The child was eventually brought to Lutheran Medical Center in Wheat Ridge to be evaluated. Both the mother and child are in excellent health.
