VANDALIA — A woman gave birth to a baby Thursday morning on the exit ramp from I-75 South onto Northwoods Boulevard in Vandalia.

According to Vandalia police, who responded as backup to Vandalia Division of Fire crews, the baby was born before they arrived on scene.  The family was transported to an undisclosed hospital for further care.

Vandalia police received a 911 call from the Montgomery Regional Dispatch Center that a woman was in a white minivan and in labor.  The cries of both the mother and baby can be heard on the call.

The dramatic call can be heard in its entirety here.

The dispatcher remained on the line during the birth and gave the baby’s father instructions on what to do until Vandalia fire and police crews arrived.

We are working to gather additional details and speak to Vandalia Fire officials for more information.
