Charlottesville Protests Brings Number Dead to 3
Three people died and about 35 were injured in a day of violence that began with clashes at a white nationalist rally on Saturday in Charlottesville, Va., Gov. Terry McAuliffe said.
One of those killed was a 32-year-old female pedestrian who was hit by a car that plowed into marchers, authorities said. The male driver is in custody, and charges are pending, authorities said.
A short time later, a police helicopter that was monitoring the protest crashed, killing two more. Virginia State Police said the crash is under investigation.
McAuliffe, speaking at a press conference, had a strong message for the white nationalist protesters: “Go home.”
He added, “You are not wanted in this great commonwealth. Shame on you. You pretend that you are patriots, but you are anything but a patriot.”
Virginia State Police posted on Facebook that the helicopter crash in Albemarle County, where Charlottesville is located, occurred at approximately 5 p.m. It is not clear whether those two fatalities were included in the three-person death toll for the day’s violence.
In video posted to Twitter, a silver car with darkened windows can be seen speeding through the crowd and ramming another vehicle, sending people through the air. The car then goes into reverse while marchers chase it.
