A set of Utah twins are doing well after they were born on the side of an interstate Sunday.

Fox 13 reports Lynette Hales of Utah was not due until August, but began to go into labor while visiting a friend in Nevada. Her friend began driving her to the hospital, but was forced to pull over on the side of Interstate 80 as Hales grew closer to delivery.

With the help of a 911 dispatcher, Hales' friend was able to deliver both boys. The first twin, named J.J., was not breathing, so Hales performed CPR on him and was able to resuscitate him.

J.J. and his twin, A.J., were taken  to a Utah hospital and are doing well, Fox 13 reports.
