Sparks woman gives birth on freeway
October 2, 2007
RENO ” A Sparks woman said Monday that God is trying to tell her that five kids is enough.
That’s after No. 5 was born at a freeway offramp.
Carla Dupree, 29, said her mother in law was driving her from Sparks to a Reno hospital on Saturday when Jayden Dupree took things into his own hands.
“I had him on the freeway,” she said. “This is the last one. God is telling me something.”
She had been in the car for about six minutes before they had to pull over just outside the Vista Boulevard exit on Interstate 80.
Jayden, who was due Oct. 19, weighed in at 6 pounds, 7 ounces. Mother and son are doing fine.
