The car that rammed into the Charlottesville protesters drove away and was found by police a few blocks away. The car was stopped and the driver was arrested. The driver’s name has not yet been released.
Here are photos of the car that allegedly drove into the crowd of protesters.
One person died from the crash. Reports began with estimates of four to six injured. Then a hospital released an estimate of 19 injured. Now that number has increased to a total of 34 injured, 19 from the crash and 15 in the rally itself.
The driver was arrested, but the driver’s name has not been released.
According to witnesses, counter protesters were hit as they turned a corner during their protest march. They were chanting things like “our streets” in response to the words “Unite the Right.” This happened after police had dispersed a group of white nationalists, CBS reported.
A photo is circulating on social media of a man being arrested next to a car that looks like the car that hit the protesters. We do not yet know if this is the driver or if this arrest is related.
When more information is known about the driver and if this is from that arrest, this story will be updated. For now, when you see the photo, know that it has not yet been authenticated as related to the protest.
Here’s another photo of the car, from a different angle.
