(London Daily Mail) At least one person is dead after a driver intentionally plowed into a group of anti-fascist protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, following violent clashes that erupted between white nationalists and activists on Saturday.
Authorities said the deceased victim was a 32-year-old woman, whose identity has not been released pending her family’s notification.
Video shows the Dodge Challenger accelerating into the crowd throwing bodies into the air as people scream before reversing at high speed – sending another 19 people to the hospital for their injuries.
It came after violent clashes erupted as hundreds of white supremacists including armed militias marched into Charlottesville sparking violent confrontations with the counter-protesters. Police cleared the scene with tear gas but the violence continued.
Charlottesville Police Chief Al Thomas said a total of 35 people had been treated for injuries, 14 of those were from individual engagements on the streets.
