Eleven people were injured.

Police say those injured do not include the driver.

Eyewitness video of the incident showed the Porsche spinning sideways before striking pedestrians. The victims sustained serious but not critical injuries, said Boise Police Lt. Charles LeBar, according to the Idaho Statesman.

On Saturday, a group of automotive enthusiasts hosted this season's, but final "Cars and Coffee" event. The driver is cooperating with the investigation. When it's complete authorities will forward it to the Ada County prosecutor for possible charges against the driver.

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

Steve Vatcher and his son, Ean, were among those who saw the crash.

Ambulances took six people to hospitals and five others were taken by private vehicles.

A Porsche plowed into a crowd of spectators at a Boise, Idaho, auto show, injuring 11 in a horrifying scene that saw bystanders scrambling to tend to the injured, authorities and witnesses said.

Facebook comments of bystanders who were at the event state that the driver hit full throttle in a turn immediately outside of the video, and one even suggests that the driver dumped the clutch of the vehicle, presumably to drift the corner.

This was the last Cars and Coffee show of the season, according to the event's Facebook page.
