Car Plows into Crowd, 1 Dead 26 Injured (Charlottesvill, VA)
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. —
A car plowed into a crowd of people peacefully protesting a white nationalist rally Saturday in a Virginia college town, killing one person and sending at least 26 others to hospitals.
An unlawful assembly and state of emergency were declared as demonstrators clashed on the streets of Charlottesville, Va., ahead of a “Unite the Right” rally. Hundreds of white nationalists and other right-wing groups battled with counter-protesters, as President Donald Trump and other public figures decried the violence.
