A woman and her newborn were taken to local hospital Sunday evening after she successfully gave birth in her vehicle.

Longview Fire Department Captain Steve McCarthy said the department received a 911 call at 5:28 p.m., directing them to the area of U.S. 80 and Spur 63 in Longview.

McCarthy said EMS workers, Chris Wilson and Jody Followwell arrived to find that a 35-year-old woman had given birth in a car.

“The baby was out,” McCarthy said. “The only thing we did was cut the umbilical cord and wrap the baby in some blankets.”
