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 on the scene said that six ambulances had arrived on the scene and later departed. Broadcast reports indicated six to nine people, or more, were victims of the crash. A vehicle appeared to have struck a group of counterdemonstrators, according to a report on MSNBC, which hastened to note that it could not be determined whether the incident was in any manner intentional. There were “multiple injuries,” according to the local Daily Progress newspaper.
