A baby was delivered in a car on the side of an Albuquerque freeway. The baby came so fast, her father was forced to pull over on Interstate 25. Brinna Lee Milligan had a grand entrance into the world. "We're on the side of I-25; we are on the side of the freeway. It's freezing outside, and I'm delivering this baby," said father Andrew Milligan.
"We were half way through Bernalillo when I felt the first urge to just push," said mother Deanne Milligan.
