A Porsche Boxster Spyder has injured 11 people after crashing into a crowd of bystanders in Boise, the capital city of Idaho.
According to authorities, the driver of the Porsche lost control while leaving the parking lot where a Cars and Coffee event was being held.
KTVB asserts that police believe the driver was “accelerating rapidly” as he was leaving the event and footage of the crash clearly shows the rear-end of the Porsche losing traction before it mounts the curb, spins and collides with a number of pedestrians.
Boise Police Lt. Charles Lebar told local media that six people were transported to hospital by ambulance while the remaining five went in private vehicles. He says “some of the injuries are serious, but none of them are critical.”
“We do not have any information that this was an intentional act. It is my understanding that there was at least one person that was taking video of the cars that were leaving the parking lot, and accelerating quickly eastbound on Overland,” Lebar said.
It is unclear if the driver will face criminal charges.
