Omaha Woman Gives Birth in the Car on the Way to Methodist Women's Hospital

Dreshon West Jr.'s first car ride was to the hospital, not on the way home from the hospital.

"As soon as we got in the car, I immediately took off, traffic violations and everything went outside the window. We gotta get to the hospital," said Dreshon West Sr.

In all the commotion the early morning of June 24, the frazzled parents accidentally took the 168th Street exit off West Dodge Road instead of 192nd Street, where Women's Methodist Hospital is located.

Realizing his mistake, West tried to turn to get back on West Dodge Expressway, but their son had other plans.
