At least 11 people were injured Saturday morning when a Porsche plowed into a crowd of spectators at a Boise, Idaho, car show.

Six of the victims were taken to the hospital by an ambulance and five went by private vehicle.

Boise Police said the driver of the gray Porsche accelerated rapidly as he was leaving the Cars and Coffee event, lost control and ran into the nearby crowd. Police issued a statement saying the driver is cooperating with their investigation.

Justin King, a car enthusiast from Nashville, Tennessee, told the Associated Press he was nearby when the crash happened.

"You could hear the screaming," he said. "There were people's shoes that went flying. There was at least one youngster, less than 10, he was kind of unconscious."

"Most people that were hit, it looked like broken legs and that type of thing," he said. "People were rendering aid pretty quickly."

He added that a military medic attending the show was able to help attend to victims quickly.

According to King, about 400 to 500 cars took part in the show, but only about half stayed after the crash happened.
