A woman who was nine months pregnant crashed her vehicle in Clarksville early this morning and then had her baby shortly after being flown by helicopter to Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

The woman, 21, whose name hasn’t been released was driving at around 3 a.m. on Ashland City Road when her Toyota Corolla went off the right side for an unknown reason. The car went about 150 feet and hit a cement culvert near Seven Mile Family Road.

The woman suffered facial injuries and was taken by LifeFlight to Vanderbilt. The child was born just after arrival.
