Car Strikes Protesters as White Nationalists Stage Demonstration in Virginia
A car plowed into a crowd of protesters at a white supremacists rally in Charlottesville, Va., hours after Gov. Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency over violent clashes accompanying the rally.
Charlottesville city officials said there were multiple injuries from the car hitting pedestrians.
Police earlier ordered crowds to disperse as chaotic and violent scenes erupted around the city, spurred by a planned demonstration by a white supremacist group that was protesting the removal of a statute of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.
