Transit Tot: Woman Gives Birth On I-270

Only weeks after a woman gave birth to a healthy boy on the platform of the L'Enfant Metro Station, this morning a woman gave birth to a baby on I-270 south of Germantown.

The baby girl was born on the side of the busy interstate just south of Exit 15 during the busy morning commute. Both mother and child were reported to be doing well and were transported to a local hospital.

On August 1 23-year-old Shavonnte Taylor went into labor on a Greenbelt-bound Green Line train, safely delivering a baby boy named Amir on the platform at L'Enfant Plaza.
