BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Lawyers representing a child, who was injured last month when a Porsche plowed into a crowd of spectators at a Boise, Idaho, car show, are seeking witnesses to the crash in order pursue a possible lawsuit.

Skaug Law P.C. issued a news release on Tuesday on behalf of the family asking that witnesses contact the Nampa, Idaho, law firm, The Idaho Statesman reported .

County and city prosecutors have not filed any criminal charges against the driver who police said lost control of his vehicle and drove into a crowd causing injuries to 11 people.

Matt Andrew, an attorney with the firm, said they’re asking for witnesses, so they “can fully understand what happened.”

The law firm has declined to provide additional information on the victim, and Andrew said it’s too early to know when a civil case might be filed.

“Many times, police are focused on the criminal aspects of the case, but that doesn’t necessarily align with the civil aspect of the case,” Andrew said.

Boise Police Department spokeswoman Haley Williams said crash reconstruction is continuing, so the case is still under investigation.

“It’s not an unusual amount of time for a crash with such serious consequences and when toxicology tests have been requested,” Williams said.
