    CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — White nationalists and counter-protesters clashed violently on Saturday, and a car plowed into a group described as "anti-racist" demonstrators, killing one person and injuring 19 others, authorities and witnesses said.

    Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency after unrest in the Virginia city of more than 43,000 people.

    Supporters gathered in Emancipation Park Saturday morning in anticipation of a noon rally held by "Unite the Right." The aim of the rally was to protest the removal of a statue honoring Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. The park was formerly known as Lee Park.

    State police and members of the Virginia National Guard surrounded the park after McAuliffe declared a state of emergency and the city of Charlottesville declared the alt-right protest an unlawful assembly — effectively cancelling the demonstration before its planned start time.

    The Charlottesville Police Department reported that, as of midday, it had made a single arrest and emergency medical personnel had responded to eight injuries.

    Later in the day, a car plow into a group of counter-protesters as they walked through the streets of Charlottesville — killing one and injuring 19, according to a spokesperson for the University of Virginia Medical Center.

    The car that struck the crowd was a silver Dodge Charger, which built speed over two blocks before hitting the counter-protesters. It then appeared to back up and flee the scene.
    The driver of one vehicle was later apprehended and arrested by Charlottesville police.
    CPD asked that people avoid and clear the site of the three-vehicle accident — Fourth Street and Water Street — in downtown Charlottesville.

    People fly into the air as a vehicle drives into a group of protesters demonstrating against a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia on Aug. 12, 2017. The nationalists were holding the rally to protest plans by the city of Charlottesville to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. There were several hundred protesters marching in a long line when the car drove into a group of them.

    The CPD estimated between 2,000 and 6,000 people were expected to attend the "Unite the Right" rally, according to local paper The Daily Progress. The controversial event was seeking to unify the far-right wing and "affirm the right of Southerners and white people to organize for their interests," according to its Facebook page.

    McAuliffe said he declared a state of emergency to allow for a response to quell the violence.

    @Nick Delmacy lol I'm laughing at your post of Twitter uncovering of these perps .

    They used to regularly hold Klan rallies in Central Ohio on the State House (I covered a couple as a college reporter) even up until the Clinton Administration. Then after OKC Bombing, they passed a law that Klansman could not rally with their faces covered. Cleared them out like roaches when the light switch goes off lol.

    White privilege is so strong and unconscious they never stop to think that putting yourself out there in the age of social media can have consequences.

    @DreG Rappaport is the kind of white dude I grew up around and still hang with. It's a balance between privilege minded trash at these rallies on the white side and homophobe hoteps on the black side.

    This whole shit happened a lot later than I expected, but it WAS expected. It's situations like this (and many others) that make me thankful to be living where I live. I'm going to need some of my family to get the fuck out of AZ, SC and VA though.
