Charlottesville mayor: We're not seeing leadership from the White House

A state official said the driver of a auto that plowed into a group of marchers in Charlottesville is in police custody.

Police report at least four injuries after a auto plowed into a crowd of people as white nationalists from "Unite the Right" clashed with Antifa and Black Lives Matter counter-protesters Saturday afternoon in Charlottesville, Virginia. Moran did not provide the driver's name.

A 32-year-old woman who was crossing the street was killed and 19 people were injured, the Associated Press confirmed with hospital officials.


Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signer tweeted that he was "heartbroken that a life has been lost here" and urged "all people of good will [to] go home".

A group of people described as anti-fascist, anti-racist counter-protesters continued to march in the streets of Charlottesville after the rally was officially shut down. He did not provide details. The auto then rapidly drives away in reverse as several people lay on the ground injured.

The counter protesters were there in response to a "Unite the Right" rally, which consists of white nationalists and other right-wing groups, according to the city's verified twitter account. His 45-second cellphone video captured the gray Dodge Challenger with OH plates racing toward the crowd - hitting it, then reversing away with a damaged windshield and front end.
