Police chase speeding car with woman in labor

(WHO) Ben and Rachel Kohnen were heading to the hospital in Fort Dodge, Iowa about 4:00 a.m. Tuesday morning, in a race against time.
Rachel was in labor, and the baby was coming fast.

Ben admits that he was going about 30 miles over the speed limit when they passed a officer.

“He starts following me and he turns on his lights an my wife says we can’t pull over. The baby is coming now,” he said.

“I did tell him not to stop,” Rachel added.

The couple says they tried to call 911, but the dispatcher probably couldn’t understand Rachel in between her contractions.

“I know I was crazy lady screaming it into the phone,” said Rachel.

As they approached the outskirts of Fort Dodge, authorities were waiting for them.

“They had thrown out the tire spikes and so all four tires, I run over those and all four tires go flat,” said Ben Kohnen.
