Woman delivers baby in pickup on way to hospital

NEVADA (KWWL) --  A woman and her boyfriend celebrate a new baby boy, delivered in a Dodge pickup on the way to the hospital.

Heather Bell and Jeff Fredregill, of Collins, were driving to a hospital in Ames on New Year's Day. Bell timed her contractions at just minutes apart, and soon she delivered her son in the front passenger seat.

Bell said the Story County Medical Center in Nevada was just up the road, and paramedics were waiting when the couple arrived. Bell and her baby boy then got an ambulance ride to the hospital in Ames.

The baby's name is Nico Dodge Fredregill, in honor of the vehicle in which he was born.
