IOWA (WHO) – Police chased a speeding SUV on Highway 7 in Iowa, but the car’s occupants had a good explanation for driving over the speed limit.

Ben and Rachel Kohnen were speeding to the hospital in Fort Dodge at approximately 4:00 a.m. on Tuesday (Oct. 14). He said that he was going roughly 30 miles over the speed limit when an officer clocked their speed.

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

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

She was in labor at the time with their fourth child, and she didn’t think they would make it to the hospital in time.
