Baby born in car on 490

Rochester, N.Y. - Jessica Ruiz was actually due nine days from now, but her youngest son had other plans.

Ruiz and her husband were heading to the hospital from their Pavilion home just after midnight Wednesday when her contractions got stronger and stronger.

Ruiz said at one point her husband was driving so fast, they were pulled over by police, who took one look at the situation and let them go.

But little Ruiz couldnt wait; he was ready to see his new world right on Route 490.

I could feel the baby's head so I told him we're not going to make it to the hospital, there's no way and he kept saying, we're going to make it and we got to exit 6 off of 490 and he put the car in park and I had the baby in my hands, Ruiz said.

It's crazy at that point my body just took over, I wasn't physically pushing anymore, it just happened.

Ruiz delivered Ashton Karter Ruiz at seven pounds, one ounce and 19 inches.

The baby and family are doing fine.
