PINEVILLE - A Louisiana man who was rushing his wife to the hospital at speeds topping 100 mph missed his child's birth because he was in jail.
KALB-TV reports that Zak Evans was arrested Monday and remained in jail as the couple's daughter was born. His wife, Bridget, received an ambulance ride to a hospital. Evans was given a ticket for speeding, flight from an officer and careless operation.
