Oregon Driver Arrested For Towing Her Children In A Red Wagon

According to Springfield Police Department, Donohue attached a the plastic wagon to the rear of her vehicle with a tie-down rope and drove to a roundabout circle, where she made laps around the roundabout until citizens stepped in.

According to the Register-Guard, Alana Nicole Donahue of Springfield, Oregon, was arrested Wednesday evening after witnesses reported seeing her driving a vehicle and towing a plastic red wagon with children in it.

The wagon, drivers told police, had two children in it.

The children, ages 3 and 5, were not injured.

Alana Nicole Donahue had her two children tailing her on a roundabout in Springfield, Oregon when police received calls from concerned motorist.

When confronted by police, Donohue told an officer she didn't know why everyone was making such a big deal, saying she was just trying to show them a good time.

"I talked to a witness today that said she saw them go by her house in their neighborhood and they were going like 30 miles an hour", Lt. McKee said.

They also say the children and the wagon were nearly hit when the auto pulled into a nearby store. A photo released by police seems to show them not wearing any protective gear.

At least four drivers called police after seeing the woman in a white Ford Taurus pulling the wagon in the traffic circle at South 42nd Street and Jasper Road.

The Register-Guard reports the mum-of-two from the town of Springfield is accused of endangering the kids, aged three and five.

Donohue is facing three charges of reckless endangering, though the children were not hurt.
