  • A group of alt-right activists marched through the University of Virginia campus in Charlottesville chanting

US hospital officials in Charlottesville, Virginia, say one person was killed and 19 were injured on August 12 by a auto that plowed through a crowd protesting against a rally of white supremacists and far-right activists. People hit others with clubs and sprayed pepper spray during the event, which was protesting the renaming of city parks formerly named after Confederate generals and the impending removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

The person who died when a vehicle smashed into the crowd, there were also the pilot and a passenger in a state police helicopter that crashed outside the city, Xinhua quoted Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe as saying. It is known known precisely how the helicopter was connected to the violent rally, according to the Boston Globe.

At one point, a auto sped forward through a march of counterprotesters, mowing down people, including one woman who was killed.

The impact hurled people into the air. He has been identified by police as 20-year-old James Alex Fields.

Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe said he and the first lady considered both men their close friends. "I think people need to be more peaceful". He said they are not white supremacists and are only interested in free speech. Altogether 35 people were treated.

Police said they believe the incident was deliberate.

The Department of Justice has opened a federal civil rights investigation into the violence at Saturday's white nationalist rally and counter-protest in Charlottesville, Virginia, that left three dead and dozens wounded. "That's why we voted for Donald Trump, because he said he's going to take our country back". "This has been going on for a long, long time".

The auto crash was one of several violent incidents during the rally which prompted the Governor of Virginia to declare a state of emergency as police in riot gear ordered people to disperse. Our message is plain and simple: "go home", McAuliffe told a news conference.
