One person was killed and other 19 were injured as a car plowed into the crowed was holding a march protest to “take America back”.
According to a video recorded at the place of incident, a grey car accelerated into the crowds on a pedestrian mall, sending bodies flying — and then reversing at high speed, hitting yet more people.
The driver and vehicle have been taken into custody while the police officials are maintaining that it is too early to say whether the attack was intentional or unintentional.
US President Donald Trump, on the other hand, criticised the protest march and asked people to unite as one nation.
Without directly mentioning the Charlottesville incident, the US President Donald Trump on Saturday condemned the hate and violence after the state of Virginia declared the emergency.
The state declared the emergency after a big white nationalist rally turned violent in Charlottesville in Virginia.
"We ALL must be united and condemn all that hate stands for. There is no place for this kind of violence in America," Trump wrote on Twitter.
