    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — At least 11 people received injuries after a car plowed into a crowd at a Cars and Coffee car show in the city of Boise in the US western state of Idaho, local police said in a statement.

    According to preliminary information, the gray Porsche was leaving a parking lot of the event, when the driver reportedly lost control and sped into a crowd of visitors.
