QUINCY, Mass., Aug. 1 (UPI) -- Massachusetts State Police said a baby girl born in the backseat of a car on the interstate was the second to be delivered by troopers in the past two weeks.

The State Police barracks in Milton said dispatchers directed the father to get off 1-95 at the Furnace Brook Parkway exit in Quincy at 2:30 a.m. Sunday and they were met by five state troopers who helped deliver the baby girl at 2:51 a.m., The Boston Globe reported Monday.

An ambulance took the Plainville woman and the newborn girl to Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston.

A State Police spokesman said the recent birth came after troopers helped a Burlington woman deliver her baby July 18 in the middle of a Cambridge intersection.
