Nine pedestrians leaving a funeral in Boise today were sent to the hospital after an elderly male driver accelerated into a large crowd of people, Boise Police and Fire spokeswoman Lynn Hightower said. It appears to be an accident, she said.
Preliminary information shows that two of those injured, including a 5-year-old boy, may be in serious or life-threatening condition.
The car was parked adjacent to an LDS church sidewalk near West McMillan Road and North Shamrock Avenue in Boise before it accelerated into the crowd at about 2:45 p.m.
Victims have been taken to Meridian, Eagle and Boise hospitals. The driver does not appear to be injured, Hightower said.
