SALEM, N.H. (AP) – The mother of a 7-year-old girl who accidentally ran over her 2-year-old sister while starting the family car faces child endangerment and other charges in New Hampshire.
Police say 27-year-old Salem resident Amylynn Michelle Boehm turned herself in to police Sunday night.
She faces two counts of endangering the welfare of a child and one count of an improper person operating a vehicle.
Police say the Boehm told officers she gave her daughter permission last week to start the Ford Focus, which was parked in front of the family’s apartment.
The 7-year-old mistakenly put the vehicle into reverse and backed over her sister.
The toddler suffered broken bones in her legs and other injuries.
