At least one death has been confirmed after a car plowed into a crowd of protesters in Charlottesville

Chaos erupted in Charlottesville, Virginia, Saturday when white supremacists and alt-right personalities clashed with police and protesters at their “Unite the Right” rally.

The groups began to disperse after Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe declared a “state of emergency,” but as crowds were leaving, a silver Dodge Charger sped through the streets and crashed into one of the crowds.
