An Oregon woman is facing multiple charges after she allegedly towed her two young children and another child in a plastic toy wagon tied to her vehicle on Wednesday.

Alana Donohue, 27, is charged with three counts of reckless endangering, Springfield police say. She is accused of towing her two-year-daughter, four-year-old son, and eight-year-old nephew around a roundabout.

Authorities say that witnesses reported that a woman towing three kids -- and that Donohue drove as fast as 30 miles per hour.

"A witness reported the toddler began crying after the wagon went up on two wheels during the trip," a news release said. "That same witness reported observing Donohue pull over and move the toddler from the wagon to the car and then continue driving with the 4 year-old and the 8 year-old still in the wagon."

Donohue was indignant when drivers tried to get her to stop and said they should "mind their own business," the release said.

Donohue confessed to towing the kids and claimed to have been traveling 5 miles per hour, Springfield police spokesman Lt. Scott McKee told The Oregonian.

"Given the time of day, it's right at 5 o'clock, it's a busy intersection," he said. "It feeds from three different directions."

Drugs and alcohol were ruled out, police said. Donohue's children have been placed with someone else, the newspaper added.

Oh Heaven forbid. Lock her up for a dime. Put kids in the system to raise, oh the outrage. Maybe just make her a co ho for crying out loud. How horrible.

Funny part about it, I had to go into the office today and a few of my coworkers were in there. We got to discussing how no one would believe some of our stories because, well hell, if I hadn't been there, I wouldn't have believed it either. Human stupidity makes for some really great stories. Cops and criminals alike.

She moved the toddler to the car when it seemed unsafe. Seems responsible to me.

'Allegedly'? WTF?

The photograph is quite clear to me.

What could possibly go wrong?

She looks completely pilled out on pain pills or xanax in her photos.

Well at least she was only going like 5mph or maybe a little more.

Imagine what she'd do at the store with a shopping cart?
