Boise Police have identified the driver of the car that lost control and crashed into a crowd of spectators after a Boise car show on Saturday.

Police say his name is Roy L. Drennon, 49, of Eagle, and that they do anticipate that charges will be filed against him.

Officers say the exact charges are still being determined and depend on the results of their investigation and a toxicology test.

Officers say Drennon did not show any signs of impairment after the crash, but the results of the test are needed for the investigation.

Police said on Saturday that the driver was cooperating with their investigation.

Investigators say they are also doing crash reconstruction to determine exactly what happened leading up to the crash.

Police say 11 people were injured in the crash, which happened as cars were leaving the Cars and Coffee event at the Boise Spectrum.

Some witnesses told KBOI 2News they saw people flying over the roof of the car as it plowed through the crowd.
