SAN ANTONIO – While many drivers were stuck in traffic Thursday morning, Athena Aguinaga was giving birth on a San Antonio highway.

Aguinaga gave birth to a healthy baby boy in the backseat of a truck on Loop 1604.

Her mother and stepfather were trying to get her to the hospital, but baby Noah wasn't waiting.

Noah made his arrival somewhere near Loop 1604 and Interstate 10.

Hospital staff members were standing by as soon as they made it to the hospital.
