Dad arrested breaking traffic laws rushing daughter to hospital

Sometimes laws are unfair. 

Should a father be allowed to break traffic laws if his daughter's life is on the line? We certainly think so.

A couple in Illinois was busted for speeding to the hospital on Thursday, after their one-year-old daughter started choking on a penny. The dad was arrested for going over 100 miles an hour, and not having a valid driver's license. By the time he got to the hospital, multiple police cars had been following him for miles. But nurses at the hospital got together, and paid the bond to get him out of jail.

KPLR reports:

Darius Hinkle said a group of local nurses bonded him out of jail after he was arrested for breaking traffic laws while rushing his daughter to the hospital. He said the nurses work at Touchette Regional Hospital in Centreville.
Hinkle admitted he does not have a valid driver’s license and said he was speeding on the way to the hospital on Thursday, but said he did it because his 1-year-old daughter was choking on a penny. He said by the time he arrived at the hospital, more than a handful of police officers with different agencies were behind him.
Hinkle said he was taken into custody once he arrived at the hospital. The 1-year-old's mother said she arrived at the jail when a woman she didn't recognize was there to bond Hinkle out. That’s when she learned a group of nurses chipped in money to bond the father out.
