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.
