Most State Highway Patrol troopers are used to seeing and responding to cars that are exceeding the speed limit.

But a speeding van that Sgt. Brian Maynard pulled over Saturday night on N.C. Highway 64 had more going on in it than just a driver who was in a hurry.

The vehicle was carrying a Nash County man and his pregnant wife who was in the throes of giving birth — four days earlier than expected.

During the traffic stop, Jimmy Baker and his wife, Laura, told the trooper about their plight and said they needed him to lend a hand.

“I was telling them the baby was in my pants and he needed to help me,” Laura Baker said.

A dash cam mounted in Maynard’s police cruiser captured footage of the family’s van as it was traveling about 85 miles per hour around 11 p.m. on the highway. They pulled their vehicle over on NC-64, just west of Exit 429.  More

Sgt. Brian Maynard has never delivered a baby before until the Bakers’ little girl who they named Halyn. She is reportedly perfectly healthy. She was taken to a local hospital where he took a photo with the family.
