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.

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.
