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.
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.
