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.
