A very special first birthday to a baby who didn't want to put the brakes on. Brinley Bengel turned one-year-old this week.

You may remember the story last year of the baby girl delivered in a pick-up truck on I-80 as her parents made their way from Atlantic, Iowa, to the hospital in Council Bluffs.

Chris and Erica Bengel say they thought they had more than enough time to make it to the hospital, but baby Brinley had other plans.  Erica Bengel delivered her baby with the help of her husband Chris and a Shelby County 911 dispatcher walking him through it.

Brinley’s parents say she is a healthy and happy one-year-old and they will never forget the day she was born.
