Porsche plows into spectators at Idaho auto show; at least 11 hurt”

According to Boise Police, preliminary information shows the driver of the Porsche was accelerating rapidly as he left the vehicle show, turning onto Overland Road.

Boise Police say that while the investigation is ongoing, preliminary information shows that the driver of the Porsche was accelerating rapidly as he left the auto show onto eastbound Overland Road, lost control, and ran into the crowd.

Six individuals were transported to the doctor's facility by rescue vehicle, and five went in private vehicles. The people hurt had serious but not critical injuries, said Boise Police Lt. Charles LeBar.

As of now, the driver is cooperating with the police during their investigation and has not been cited, the newspaper reports.

"The information I have is that the driver was showing off for the crowd", 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". My husband was nearby. "My husband saw people all over the ground".

Police have also closed some of the surrounding roads so they can figure out exactly what happened.

At this point, there's no word on whether the driver will face any criminal charges.

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

"I have no doubt that the driver did not intend to do what he did, but that is an unfortunate outcome of reckless driving".
