The alleged driver of the car that plowed into a group of counterprotesters in Charlottesville has been booked on suspicion of second-degree murder

The auto that allegedly plowed through a crowd of protestors marching through a downtown shopping district is seen after the vehicle was stopped by police several blocks away August 12, 2017 in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Authorities in Virginia said late Saturday that an OH man had been booked into jail on murder and other charges, but did not say whether he was the driver who plowed into a crowd of people protesting a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville.

At least one person died as a result of the incident and multiple people were injured.

Unrest intensified on Saturday, as a vehicle plowed into a group of counter-protesters at a white nationalist rally, killing one and injuring more than 30 others.

The police chief said none of the injuries at the rally were due to engagement between civilians and officers.

The 32-year-old female was crossing the road when she was struck by the suspect driver.

Thomas said that they are treating this as a criminal homicide investigation.

Police said only that the crash is under investigation and have not commented on specific aspects of the crash.
