During Saturday’s Charlottesville, Va protest, a 32-year-old woman was killed and 19 others were injured after a car unexpectedly plowed into the active counter-protesters protesters.

According to Fox News, “the chaos boiled over at what is believed to be the largest group of white nationalists to come together in a decade: the governor declared a state of emergency, police dressed in riot gear ordered people out and helicopters circled overhead. The group had gathered to protest plans to remove a statue of the Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.”
