Car Plows Into Protesters Marching Against ‘Pro-White’ Rally
What is currently taking place in Charlottesville, Virginia is downright disgusting!
One person is dead and several others were badly injured after a Dodge Charger plowed into a crowd protesters marching against the “pro-white” rally.
Via CBS News:
A car struck a group of protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, after police dispersed a gathering of white nationalists on Saturday.
At least one person was killed in the collision, Charlottesville Mayor Mike Singer said on Twitter.
“I am heartbroken that a life has been lost here,” Singer wrote. “I urge all people of good will — go home.”
At least a half-dozen others were also wounded, suffering minor to life-threatening injuries, authorities said Saturday.
A dozen medics were seen carting the injured back and forth on stretchers. The victims appear to be counter-protesters but could be residents, CBS News justice reporter Paula Reid reports.
“A car appeared to deliberately mow down pedestrians,” eyewitnesses told Reid.
Video from the scene showed a grey sedan plowing into protesters marching through the downtown shopping district as bystanders screamed for help.
Footage from another angle showed the car speeding in reverse to flee the scene.
Video of the incident has surfaced on social media.

Did Trump really say that he condemns the violence on "many sides"? The white folks with tiki torches brought the violence, own it.
