CHARLOTTE AMALIE, U.S. Virgin Islands (AP) — U.S. Virgin Islands police say a woman was allegedly driving with her newborn baby zipped up in her purse.
A police statement says an officer pulled over a woman driving a pickup during a routine traffic stop Tuesday. While asking for the St. Croix woman's license, the officer reported hearing a baby crying but did not see a baby seat in the vehicle.
The motorist then allegedly unzipped a purse sitting on the seat next to her and revealed a tiny newborn.
Police say the woman told them that the baby girl was born at home a week ago and had no prenatal care. She was apparently driving the infant to a doctor.
Authorities rushed the newborn to a hospital. The mother may face criminal charges. Her name and age were not disclosed.
