An Oregon woman has been charged with two counts of reckless endangerment after multiple drivers reported a car towing three children — her 2-year-old daughter, 4-year-old son and 8-year-old nephew — in a small, plastic red wagon going around a busy roundabout multiple times during rush hour.

Police were not initially aware of the third child, and a third charge is now pending.

This story was first reported by The Register-Guard (http://bit.ly/2vakQl7).

Alana Nicole Donahue, 27, of Springfield admitted to officers that she was towing children behind her white Ford Taurus in a wagon attached with a rope Wednesday, Lt. Scott McKee, a spokesperson for Springfield Police Department, said Friday over the phone.

Lt. McKee told The Oregonian/OregonLive that Donahue told police it wasn’t a big deal, that she was “showing the kids a good time,” and only driving 5 miles per hour.

According to Lt. McKee, witness saw something different.

“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.

In a press release, police said that a witness reported the youngest child begin to cry after the wagon went up on two wheels during the trip.
