State of Emergency in Charlottesville, Virginia
A car plowed into a crowd of counter-protesters after a white nationalist and Alt-Right 'Unite the Right' rally devolved into rioting.
Hundreds of white nationalists, neo-Nazis and members of the "alt-right" march down East Market Street toward Lee Park during the "Unite the Right" rally on August 12, 2017 in Charlottesville, Virginia. After clashes with protesters, police said the rally was declared an unlawful gathering and people were forced out of Lee Park, where a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee is slated to be removed.
One person was killed and at least nine others were injured after a car plowed through a group of counter-protesters who were demonstrating against the alt-right and white nationalist rally.
