3 dead, 35 injured after 'Unite the Right' rally sparks violence in Charlottesville
CNN is reporting the driver in the deadly attack on a protest of a pro-white rally here is James Alex Fields Jr., 20, of Maumee, Ohio.
The crash happened after one person was killed at the rally, when a vehicle ploughed into a crowd of anti-racism protesters.
A 32-year-old woman was killed in the attack, Charlottesville police said.
A 20-year-old OH man has been charged with murder after allegedly plowing into a crowd of counter-protesters at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va.
The vehicle attack occurred around 1pm, soon after a state of emergency was declared in the city for the clashes between participants in the march and those opposed to it.
Videos on social media from the scene show a silver auto traveling at a high rate of speed and rear-ending a stopped vehicle on Water and Fourth Streets in Downtown Charlottesville, pushing two cars into a large crowd of protesters.
The turbulence began Friday night, when the white nationalists carried torches though the University of Virginia campus. Fields faces second degree murder charges for killing a woman and injuring 19 other people.
The group had gathered to protest plans to remove a statue of the Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. After marchers clashed with counter-protesters (mainly anitfa), police ruled the nightly demonstration an unlawful assembly, and broke it up. Police report that three people were arrested in relation to the rally.
Charlottesville City Manager Maurice Jones said at the conference that 14 people were treated for injuries, "ranging from life-threatening to mild".
She said her son hadn't given her any details about the rally but that she told him "to be careful" and to peaceful.
President Trump denounced the "egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides", but drew scrutiny for not condemning the white nationalists directly.
The city has become ground zero for white nationalist and other protesters, who faced larger counter-rallies in the past.
