News video: At Least One Killed After Car Strikes Crowd in CharlottesvilleOne person was killed and 19 were injured in Charlottesville, Virginia, after a car plowed through a group of counter-protesters who were demonstrating against an alt-right and white nationalists rally. A spokesperson for University of Virginia Hospital said that 20 patients were admitted to the hospital — 19 injuries and one fatality. Her words confirmed a tweet sent by Charlottesville Mayor Michael Signer that said someone had been killed. “I am heartbroken that a life has been lost here. I urge all people of good will--go home,” he tweeted. The driver of one vehicle was taken into custody, according to Charlottesville Police. A witness described the scene, “It was very clearly intentional. From the far end of the street it accelerated, slowed down right before the crowd and then slammed on the gas through the crowd sending bodies flying. And then it reversed back into the street dragging bodies and clothes."
