A group of nurses paid a bond of a father who was arrested for multiple traffic violations while he was racing his 1-year-old daughter to the Touchette Regional Hospital in Centreville, Illinois.
According to KTVI, Darius Hinkle, was traveling at a speed of more than 100 mph after his the baby girl choked on a penny.
He told the station, "The first thing in my mind was to get her to the hospital."
When Darius, his wife and daughter arrived at the hospital, police were waiting for him to take into custody.
Nurses are SO awesome! And I am not just saying that because I AM one!
I can see the police being there waiting for him at the hospital if he had killed someone, or robbed a bank, but for TRAFFIC violations?! THAT is criminal! https://t.co/QwXNCU5bU1
