(Cedar City-AP) -- Mother Nature waits for nobody. That's what a Cedar City woman learned Sunday night when she gave birth on the way to the hospital.

Holly and Clayton Williams were racing to the hospital in the family's extra cab Ford pickup truck. Holly says she had her first contraction at 10 p-m, but as they sped toward the hospital along Minersville Highway, the baby wouldn't wait.

Little NayVee Claire Williams was born at 10:57 p-m with the help of her grandmother, who was also in the truck and was able to use a blanket to dry the baby.

Clayton Williams was on the phone with Cedar City dispatch but had lost cell phone service. But when they finally got to the hospital, doctors say mom and baby were just fine.
