SEATTLE (AP) — A judge has set bail at $250,000 for a 37-year-old Seattle woman accused of running down two high school students with her car.

Both teens were injured.

Amy Lynn O'Brien turned herself in to police on Thursday and was jailed for investigation of two counts of second-degree assault. Prosecutors face a Dec. 4 charging deadline.

Witnesses said two girls were walking near Chief Sealth High School on Wednesday morning when a dog ran up and jumped on one of them so she pushed it away. Witnesses said the dog's owner became enraged and intentionally drove her car into the girls.

A 17-year-old girl was treated and released at Harborview Medical Center. An 18-year-old was more seriously hurt. Her family has asked the hospital to keep her information private.
