Vehicle plows into crowd following Virginia white nationalist rally, driver in custody

20, of OH, is charged with second-degree murder, three counts of malicious wounding and one count of failing to stop for a hit and run with injury.

The auto slammed into a crowd of people peacefully protesting a white nationalist rally in the Virginia college town, killing a 32-year-old woman and injuring at least two dozen more, authorities said.

Charlottesville Police Chief Al Thomas said the suspect was taken into custody not far from the crash site.

The 32-year-old victim's identity has not yet been released.

Police say 19 other people reported suffering injuries from the crash.

The AP is also reporting a Virginia state helicopter crash that killed two people near Charlottesville was related to the rally.

"The premeditated violence that our community experienced today was completely unacceptable", Thomas said to reporters Saturday night.

The controversial "Unite the Right" march was organised to protest the removal of a statue honouring General Robert E Lee, commander of the Confederate Army in the 19th-century American Civil War. Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency in the city and police ordered the crowds to disperse.
