NCCharlottesville people hit by car as one driver makes off from the scene
A gathering of hundreds of white supremicists in Virginia took a deadly turn when a vehicle ploughed into a group of counter-protesters and killed at least one person in a flare up of violence.
Officials say the deaths of two people in a Virginia State Police helicopter crash near Charlottesville have been linked to a violent white nationalist rally earlier in the day. "Shame on you. You pretend you are patriots, but you are anything a patriot".
He then said that the driver of the auto was "honking their horn" and then "they were just, like, bulldozing through people".
"On behalf of the Albemarle Board of Supervisors and County staff, I would like to offer honest condolences to the family, friends and coworkers of the victims of the violence that occurred in our community today", said Diantha McKeel, Chair of the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors.
"It's not OK what's happening right now", said Cat Brooks. The governor declared a state of emergency and police dressed in riot gear in an effort to control unruly crowds.
During Saturday's clash, white nationalists and counter-protesters tossed bottles, threw punches and deployed chemical sprays.
The fast-paced march was made up nearly exclusively of men in their 20s and 30s, though there were some who looked to be in their mid-teens. The group, which is believed to be the largest gathering of white nationalists in a decade, were protesting plans to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.
"This represents a turning point for the people of this country", former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke spoke at the rally. "It's been going on for a long time in our country".
Virginia's governor has ripped into the "white supremacists and the Nazis" who took part in a far-right rally in Charlottesville.
Many protesters "express beliefs that directly contradict our community's values of diversity, inclusion and mutual respect", Teresa Sullivan, president of the University of Virginia, said in another statement released hours before the rally. More protesters gathered to rally against the right-wing demonstrators.
