Just yesterday we were asking what's with all the stupid Porsche drivers recently? Looks like we asked that question a bit too soon. According to the various stories we've read, up to 11 people were taken to a local hospital after a man driving a Porsche Boxster drove into a crowd of people while allegedly attempting a burn out as he left a Boise Cars & Coffee meet.
It's hard to tell from the video above exactly what happened. What is clear, however, is that there are multiple people down on the ground, the windshield on the Porsche itself is severely damaged suggesting a heavy impact by someone or something, and the driver of the Porsche appears unhurt as he exits the Boxster after the car came to a stop on the sidewalk. The video below, however seems a bit more clear.
Boise Police Lt. Charles LeBar told the Idaho Statesmen that witnesses relayed to his officers that "as vehicles were leaving the parking lot where the event is held, the driver of the Porsche was among several who had turned right off Entertainment Avenue onto eastbound Overland Road and were “kind of showing off for the crowd.” The driver then lost control “while going too fast,” LeBar said, and the Porsche sped sideways onto the sidewalk and grass, where onlookers were gathered."

Thankfully, as of the last update we read, there were no fatalities and none of those injured are considered to be in critical condition. Police say the driver of the Porsche is cooperating with their investigation and once completed the results will be forwarded to the ADA County prosecutor to decided if charges should be filed.
What do you think? Should the driver of the Porsche be charged and held criminally accountable for his actions?
