Vehicle careens into Boise crowd, sends 11 to hospital

This is not the first time that cars (usually Mustangs) have injured people at Cars and Coffee events. The people hurt had serious but not critical injuries, said Boise Police Lt. Charles LeBar.

"The investigation is ongoing, once it's complete the investigation will be forwarded to the prosecutor for possible charges", the Boise Police Department Twitter post says.

The Porche driver, who was unhurt, is cooperating with investigators.

Cars and Coffee is a monthly event, between April and September, where vehicle enthusiasts gather together to "share their passions", according to the event website.

LeBar said the driver was among several who had turned right off of Entertainment Avenue onto eastbound Overland Road.

Police reports that a gray Porsche plowed into a crowd of spectators at a Cars and Coffee auto show in Boise, Idaho leaving at least 11 people injured.

While showing off, the driver's Porsche lost control and jumped the curb into spectator on the sidewalk, according to the Idaho Statesman So far five people have been taken to the hospital in ambulances.

The driver of a Porsche Boxster Spyder injured numerous bystanders after losing control of his vehicle while doing a burnout near the Boise Spectrum Saturday morning.

No one has yet been cited, said LeBar.

In Facebook messages to KING 5's sister station KTVB, Elizabeth Langley expressed "a person in a dark Porsche Spider was leaving Cars and Coffee, and went to wear out of the auto appear before a group along Overland viewing the autos all leave".
