Crowd rammed by car after Charlottesville, Va., nationalist rally’s cancellation: reports

One or more cars reportedly plowed into a crowd of people near the site of Saturday’s broken-up nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va. An NBC reporter said six ambulances had arrived on the scene and later departed. Broadcast reports indicated six to nine people, or more, were victims of the crash. There were “multiple injuries,” according to the local Daily Progress newspaper. A vehicle appeared to have struck a group of counterdemonstrators, according to a report by MSNBC, which hastened to note that it could not be determined whether the incident was in any manner intentional. The car that initially plowed into the group departed the scene, with one or more police cars later in pursuit, according to an MSNBC correspondent on the scene.
