Oregon Woman Arrested for Towing Kids in Little Red Wagon Behind Car

An Oregon woman is accused of endangering her two children by towing them in a plastic red wagon behind her auto as she repeatedly navigated a roundabout, police said.

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

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

At one point, witnesses told police that the 2-year-old began crying as the wagon went up on two wheels before Donohue stopped the vehicle and put that child in the auto with her and continued pulling the other two children behind her auto.

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

According to McKee, Donahue was not intoxicated.

The Department of Human Services have placed the children in the care of another person according to the police log. One driver reported almost hitting the wagon, the police logs show.

When several drivers stopped to confront the mother, she would just drive away.

Police have charged Donohue with two counts of reckless endangerment and a third count is pending.

According to one witness, Donahue was reaching speeds of 30 miles per hour, and at one point, the wagon tipped so that it was up on two wheels, police told KVAL.

The incident took place at around 7:40 p.m., according to KVAL.
