Preliminary information shows that a driver of a gray Porsche was accelerating rapidly as he left the car show parking lot going onto East Overland Road. The vehicle lost control and crashed into several pedestrians on the sidewalk

Six victims were transported to an area hospital by ambulance, and five were taken by private vehicle.

"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.

Charles LeBar said the eleven were seriously, but not critically, injured.

It happened shortly before 11 a.m. Saturday during two events at the complex, Cars and Coffee and Rock'N Brews & BBQ. The driver is cooperating with the investigation.

Witnesses told police the Porsche and some other drivers were "kind of showing off for the crowd" as they left the parking lot where the event is held and the driver lost control going too fast, LeBar said.

"We do not have any information that this was an intentional act", Lebar said.
