Motorist Runs Into Pedestrians Near Idaho Church

BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Police are investigating after a motorist crashed into a crowd of pedestrians who had just left a funeral at Boise church. Nine people were injured, including a 5-year-old boy whose legs were broken when the car ran over him.
    
Monday's funeral was for 68-year-old June Hobson of Boise. Her son, Brad Hobson, told the Idaho Statesman (http://bit.ly/19dT4UL ) that the 5-year-old was run over when the car lurched forward. The boy also had a head wound.
    
Hobson says Karen Darrington suffered a skull fracture and bleeding on the brain, while his sister, Kimberly Haddon, suffered a concussion and a broken thumb.
    
Hobson says the driver was an 86-year-old friend of his mother's who had been struggling to get the car into gear when it accelerated without warning. He says the driver is devastated.
