Multiple Updates on the Boise Car Show Crash
After Saturday's crash, there are many unanswered questions.
We now know exactly what police are investigating, and we have a statement from the organizers of the event.
KBOI reports that after the accident, Boise Police had officers on the scene who are experts in recreating crashes by taking measurements and calculations. They also spoke with witnesses, reviewed eyewitness video, and collected additional data.
According to Lt. Charlie Lebar, Boise PD have not concluded what exactly casued the crash:

As of this writing, no charges have been filed against the driver. We're hearing he's fully cooperating with police during the investigation.
