(Hanover) -- A York County mother is accused of stuffing her children, ages 3 and 5, into the trunk of a red Corvette and then driving around town.

Hanover Borough Police pulled two-seater sports car over on July 10 after getting a 911 call from a person who saw someone placing two children in the car's trunk.

Twenty-nine-year-old Jessica Reger faces two misdemeanor charges of endangering the welfare of children and recklessly endangering another person. A call seeking comment from her public defender wasn't immediately returned Monday.

The Corvette's driver, Ilena Blackburn, 28, has also been charged with recklessly endangering another person. No attorney information for Blackburn was available in online court documents.

Reger was taken to York County Prison in lieu of $2,500 bail.
