(Newser) – President Obama visited Louisville, Kentucky, yesterday, which resulted in the usual presidential traffic jam. In this case, it was I-65 that turned into gridlock, the same route that an expectant woman and her husband were taking, reports Wave3. Police took a call about 5:15pm from the husband explaining that his wife was in labor and that traffic wasn't budging. Dispatchers coached her along and a nurse also stuck in traffic helped as the woman gave birth to a baby boy along the shoulder of the road, reports the Lexington Herald-Leader. Emergency crews arrived minutes after the birth and brought them to the hospital using the emergency lane. All are doing well.
