SPRINGFIELD, Ore. — An Oregon woman is accused of endangering her two children by towing them in a plastic red wagon behind her car as she repeatedly navigated a roundabout, police said.
Alana Nicole Donahue, 27, was arrested Wednesday, an hour after Springfield police received calls from concerned drivers, the Register-Guard reported.
According to Lt. Scott McKee of the Springfield Police Department, Donahue told authorities she “didn’t understand what the problem was because she was only driving 5 mph and she just wanted to show the kids a good time.”
The children are 3 and 5 years old, according to police dispatch logs. McKee said Donahue was not intoxicated.
According to police, Donahue was driving a white Ford Taurus. The wagon was tied to the vehicle with “a strap or similar connector,” the Register-Guard reported.
Drivers told police that Donahue was waving vehicles to go around her as she drove in circles through the roundabout.
