Snow and ice sweeping through the South caused an epic traffic jam around Atlanta on Tuesday. One couple stuck on the freeway found themselves in a different kind of jam: Their unborn baby wouldn't wait to get to the hospital.

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. Snow and ice sweeping through the South caused an epic traffic jam yesterday around Atlanta. One couple stuck on the freeway found themselves in a different kind of jam. Their unborn baby wouldn't wait to get to the hospital. So the father and a local police officer helped deliver the baby girl right there in the middle of afternoon rush hour. Mother and baby ultimately made it to the hospital, and yes, they are doing fine. It's MORNING EDITION.
