Several people are still recovering Sunday after a driver slammed into a crowd of people at a Boise car show on Overland Road Saturday morning. New video shows the gray Porsche losing control and crashing into the crowd at the Cars and Coffee car show. Police say eleven people were injured, some of them with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. 

Police say the driver is cooperating with investigators, at this time no charges have been filled. Police say once they finish their investigation they will forward the case to the prosecutor's office for possible charges.  

Erick Mejia took video as he watched cars do burnouts and motorcyclists do wheelies as they left the event. But when chaos broke out, Erick says he froze up. 

"I couldn't believe what was going on, my heart started beating I was just standing right here I just couldn't move I was just froze," said Erick Mejia.

Now, some spectators who came to the event say more needs to be done to make sure something like this doesn't happen again. 

"I think it should be done in a track or those no people around cause anything is possible anything can happen," said Jose Avila who came to the car show.

Cars and Coffee shows are held all over the world however at this it is unclear if was a sectioned event. On the event's Facebook page, they say they do not allow foolish antics in or around the event.

"The whole point of these meets is just come out and have fun and relax and this sort of stuff changes everything," said Avila.
