SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - A pregnant woman gave birth on the side of a La Jolla-area road Monday morning after her husband crashed as they rushed to the hospital.

The single-vehicle crash happened just before 3 a.m. near a southbound Interstate 5 offramp.

San Diego-based KGTV learned the couple was on their way to Scripps La Jolla Hospital after the woman went into labor, but as her husband exited southbound I-5, he turned left onto a road and crashed into several construction rails.

Emergency crews arrived at the scene to help the woman deliver the baby in the family's SUV.

Mom, dad and baby were taken to the hospital and were said to be in good condition.
