A mother in Illinois is accused of driving down the road with her daughters sitting in an inflatable pool on top of her SUV.

Police in Dixon arrested 49-year-old Jennifer A. Janus Yeager on two counts of endangering the health or life of a child.

The arrest happened Tuesday after police spotted Dixon driving down River Lane near Route 2 in Dixon with a blue inflatable pool on top of the SUV.

According to police, Yeager said she drove into town to inflate the pool at a friend's house. She wanted her daughters to hold it down as she drove it home.

Yeager also received a citation for failure to secure a passenger of the age of 8 and under the age of 16. She's free on bond.
