Salt Lake City • A Bountiful woman gave birth to a baby boy this weekend on the side of the freeway in her truck.

The ABC affiliate in Salt Lake City reports (http://bit.ly/XCM1xi ) that Heather and Kayson Gines were on their way to a hospital Saturday morning when her contractions worsened.

Heather Gines told her husband that she could feel the baby. He reached over to the front seat and felt the baby’s head.

He pulled over on the side of the freeway, and the baby boy came out with barely a push. Kayson Gines untangled the umbilical cord so the boy could breathe.

Some suggested they name their baby boy, "Chevy," but they chose Tatum. They hope to keep the truck and give it to him when he’s old enough to drive.
