A scanner report revealed that a woman went into active labor on Interstate 81 near exit 94. The woman is reported to be from Connecticut, where she has been receiving pre-natal care in Wakefield, Conn.
The Draper Volunteer Fire Department answered the call, but no one from the department was available for comment at press time. She is believed to have been airlifted to Carilion New River Valley Medical Center, although this could not be confirmed without the patient’s name.
No one from REMSI or the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office was available for comment at press time as well.
The Southwest Times will provide updates as information becomes available.
