Detroit General Motors on Wednesday said it would give the Minnesota woman who delivered a baby while driving a Chevy car a year’s supply of diapers.
Amanda McBride went into labor last week as she was on her way to North County Regional Hospital, the Bemidji Pioneer reported. She was driving a red 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt.
Joseph Phillips, the expectant father, was riding shotgun because he suffers from seizures.
“The baby just came right out,” the woman was quoted as saying. “I was just sitting on the seat and he just slid out. It really wasn’t bad at all.”
She held the baby, turned the heat up in the car and allowed Phillips to steer them to the hospital where everyone arrived safely.
