Clallam: Baby boy and parents doing fine after delivery on U.S. 101

SEQUIM — Maybe he’ll grow up to be a race car driver.

After deciding to come into the world a little more quickly than his parents anticipated, Jeffrey Wayne Lentzner was born early Saturday alongside U.S. Highway 101 while his mother was being rushed to the hospital.

“We were on our way to the hospital and he just came quick, a lot quicker than we expected,” said Dennis Lentzner, the father, who actually delivered the baby.

They had just passed River Road when the baby’s head started emerging, said Dennis, who was in the back seat with his wife, Jennifer, in a car driven by a family friend.

A state trooper who had pulled over another car began chasing them because they were driving so fast, he said.
