Alana Donohue booking

An Oregon woman is facing criminal child endangerment charges after witnesses say she tried to show her kids a "good time" in an extremely risky way, police told local media outlets.

A Springfield mother is accused of endangering her two children by towing them in a little red plastic wagon behind her auto around a roundabout repeatedly Wednesday evening.

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.

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

The same witness reported observing Donohue pull over and move the toddler from the wagon to the vehicle and then continue driving with the other two children still in the wagon. A witness reported seeing the vehicle going above 30 miles per hour, and the 2-year-old toddler began crying after the wagon tipped up on two wheels. A photo released by police seems to show them not wearing any protective gear.

Donahue was arrested after multiple witnesses called Springfield police, as well as the 8-year-old nephew's mother, who did so after seeing pictures of the incident on social media, Lt. Scott McKee told the Register-Guard. McKee said Donahue was not intoxicated.

According to police, Donohue attached the wagon to the back of her auto using a tie-down rope and drove laps in the roundabout circle at the intersection of South 42nd Street and Jasper Road.
