While snow and ice made brought Atlanta commuters to a halt Tuesday, one baby girl decided she just couldn’t wait.

Her parents were on the way to the hospital, but couldn’t make it fast enough due to treacherous road conditions, according to the Sandy Springs Police Department.

Instead, the baby’s father and a traffic officer helped the mother deliver the baby — inside a car on I-285. 

Mom and baby were fine, and paramedics were dispatched to the area to take the family to the hospital, police said.
