Why do the starter keep turning over while trying to crank it
There is a relay that energizes and controls the gear that engages and disengages the starter. Either the relay has gone bad (meaning new started unless you can just replace the relay) or the wiring energizing the relay (in the ignition switch) has failed. In either case, it'd be a replacement scenario.
The ignition switch usually has a "starter" mode when you turn the key all the way clockwise. Normally, when you let go of the key, the key will return to the "run" mode as the ignition switch is spring loaded. If it is returning (counterclockwise one step), then the internals of the switch may be bad and it's not disconnecting the starter circuit when out of the "Start" mode. If this is an older car, I'd figure out how to test the ignition switch first.
