11 people injured after Porsche crashes into crowd at auto show

The driver of a Porsche Boxster Spyder accelerated quickly through a turn and careened off the road and onto a sidewalk around 11 a.m. after a monthly Cars and Coffee meetup, police said.

Boise Police say a driver leaving the auto show parking lot crashed into several people who were on the sidewalk.

According to its Facebook profile, Cars and Coffee "is about getting automotive enthusiasts to gather on a frequent basis to share their passions".

Eyewitness video of the incident showed the Porsche spinning sideways before striking pedestrians. Amid screams from bystanders, people can be seen attending those injured as some followed the driver as he walked away from the scene.

According to information from Chief William L. Bones, Boise Police Department, the call came in at 10:51 a.m., and officers responded to the area of West Overland Road and Entertainment Avenue, where a vehicle show, Cars and Coffee, was being held.

It is pertinent to mention that once the backup is deleted, there is no way of recovering it. Reddit user Tanglebrook found this out the hard way: by losing all his data .

The driver, who is cooperating with police, has not been identified.

Ambulances took six people to hospitals and five others were taken by private vehicles. Investigators say he lost control and ran into the nearby crowd.

Eastbound Overland Road was closed from Entertainment Way to Cole Road as a crash reconstruction team investigated Saturday afternoon. Boise Fire and Ada County Paramedics immediately responded to the incident.

Authorities said an investigation is underway and the evidence will be sent to the prosecutor for "possible charges".
