Woman gives birth on highway but is courteous enough to not block traffic

An Idaho woman didn’t hit a bump in the road with her baby bump – in fact, she delivered her own highway babydaughter in the middle of driving herself to the hospital. Shawna Uriguen says she began having contractions and decided it was probably time to rush to the delivery room, but little Kimber Marie was in even more of a hurry. Shawna says, “I was at a stop light and I was on the phone with my fiancé and I told him, ‘I think the baby’s here.’ I heard the baby crying, and I was still driving because I was trying to find a spot to stop safely and pull off the road without blocking traffic.” The 29-year-old, who’d given birth before, said she thought she had plenty of time to make it to the hospital, but, as her fiancé put it, “She had a couple of mild contractions and then she had a big one and said, ‘I think the baby is in my pant leg.'” Mom and daughter are both doing fine.

Perry Martin broke into two cars at a condo complex and stole a variety of small items as a woman watched from her window and called 911. The responding officers reviewed the surveillance tape in the parking lot and saw that he was wearing a shirt emblazoned with the logo of a company called “I Got Wood,” and also the company’s phone number. The owner answered and told them how to find Martin. The 55-year-old had walked off a construction site job shortly before committing the burglaries

Some people tell a cop to kiss off when they get pulled over, but not this Florida woman! Luonna Goldstein was driving erratically when she was stopped by a deputy and stepped out of her car “accompanied by the aroma of alcoholic beverages and showing an inability to follow simple instructions.” She proved the latter when she handed him a DVD when he asked to see her drivers’ license. Then she attempted to kiss and hug him –while also tossing racial slurs in his direction. Breath tests measured Goldstein’s blood alcohol content at more than three times the legal limit of 0.08.
