Video Shows Commotion as Car Plows Into Crowd Following Charlottesville Rally


At least one person was killed and 19 injured when a car drove through a crowd of protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, on August 12, according to the UVA Medical Center, which provided treatment for victims.

The incident occurred shortly after a neo-Nazi protest and counter-protest were dispersed by police. Present in the area were both neo-Nazis and counter-protesters. The people in the path of the car were largely counter-protesters.

This video shows a commotion as the car plows through. In other videos, the car was seen driving directly into people. The car rear-ended another vehicle; one person could be seen between the two bumpers and another person could be seen on the roof.

A state of emergency was earlier declared by Governor Terry McAuliffe after violence had flared between the two groups.

Videos posted to a public story via Snapchat were said to show the arrest of the driver. The Associated Press, citing a state official, later reported that the driver was in custody. Credit: Facebook/Bill Hardy via Storyful
