ELKHART, Ind., Nov. 21 (UPI) -- An Indiana woman gave birth to a baby girl aboard a trolley in front of a local courthouse one day before she was scheduled to be induced.

Skylla Hurt of Elkhart said she was scheduled to be induced Wednesday, but she went into labor a day early while riding a trolley in front of the Goshen courthouse, WBND-TV, South Bend, Ind., reported Wednesday.

"I was heading to the bus station or trolley station and I was calling my OB doctor to let them know I was having labor, contractions really bad. And when I got on the trolley it became faster and harder and then we got to the courthouse -- it came out," Hurt said.

Hurt said she named the baby girl Autumn Dawn.
