Oregon woman arrested for towing kids behind vehicle in wagon
SPRINGFIELD, Ore. - An Oregon mother has been accused of endangering three young children by towing them behind her car in a little red wagon.
According to a report from KVUE, police arrested 27-year-old Alana Donahue after several motorists reported seeing her vehicle towing a wagon carrying her 2-year-old daughter, 4-year-old son and 8-year-old nephew.
Drivers said Donahue waved at vehicles as she slowly drove in circles in a roundabout.
A witness reported seeing the car going above 30 miles per hour, and the 2-year-old toddler began crying after the wagon tipped up on two wheels.
The witness told police that Donahue took her toddler from the wagon to the car, and then continued driving with the 4-year-old and 8-year-old still in the wagon.
Donahue reportedly told officers she just wanted to show the kids a good time, and didn't understand the problem. Police said she was not intoxicated.
Donahue faces two counts of reckless endangering, with a third count pending.
