The Morning Call - - LOCAL NEWS -

RIDGEWOOD, N.J. — New Jersey State Po­lice chased a speed­ing car for sev­eral min­utes and then ap­proached it at gun­point once the driver fi­nally pulled over.

In­side they found a woman in la­bor.

State po­lice got a call for a car speed­ing north­bound on Route 17 just be­fore 11 p.m. Fri­day. They gave chase, sig­nal­ing for the ve­hi­cle to stop.

Au­thor­i­ties tell NorthJerse­y.com that troop­ers drew their guns be­cause they didn’t know if the car’s oc­cu­pants were armed or dan­ger­ous. When they re­al­ized what was hap­pen­ing, the troop­ers es­corted the preg­nant woman and her driver to The Val­ley Hos­pi­tal in Ridgewood.

The woman’s con­di­tion wasn’t clear.
