OR mom arrested after using vehicle to tow kids in plastic wagon

Drivers said the woman waved at vehicles to pass as she slowly drove in circles in a roundabout.

Police arrested Alana Donohue Wednesday evening after saying she pulled three children, all between the ages of 2 and 8, behind her auto in a small plastic wagon.

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

The Department of Human Services have placed the children in the care of another person according to the police log.

Alana Nicole Donahue, a 27-year-old Springfield resident, faces three charges of reckless endangerment for her actions Wednesday evening, the Register-Guard reported Friday.




According to drivers' reports, Donahue allegedly waved at vehicles to go around her as she drove in circles and one even reported that they had even nearly hit the children.

Police say Donahue told one adult concerned about her actions to "be an adult about it", and added to police that she never went above five miles per hour and was "just trying to show (her) kids a good time, '" according to multiple outlets. A photo released by police seems to show them not wearing any protective gear.

The wagon was tied to the vehicle with "a strap or similar connector", the Register-Guard reported.

At least four drivers called police saying they had seen a woman in a white Ford Taurus pulling a wagon in the traffic roundabout in the area.

Lieutenant Scott McKee confirmed that Donohue is the mother of the two younger children and the older boy is her nephew.
