Narkhi police responded to the fatal accident near Bartara village where 26-year-old Kamini from Agra had been riding a bike with her husband, Ramu, on route to her parents' house.
A witness claims Ramu tried dodging a car heading the opposite direction when he lost control of the bike and collided with a speeding truck which allegedly drove off in a hit and run.
Kamini was crushed to death by the vehicle but simultaneously gave birth in what emergency responders described as a miracle.
The head of the paediatric department at Firozabad Medical College, Dr LK Gupta said: "The baby is completely out of danger. Due to premature delivery she is slightly underweight.
