Taylor Lorenz was filming the site of the incident that left at least one person dead - after a vehicle was driven into a crowd of "anti-fascist" protesters responding to a parallel white nationalist protest in the city.

Lawmakers around the USA condemned the protests in Charlottesville on Saturday that killed one person and left dozens injured.

Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe said he was "disgusted by the hatred, bigotry and violence these protesters have brought to our state over the past 24 hours".

Multiple people have been injured in a auto crash in Charlottesville, VA.

"I am heartbroken that a life has been lost here", Charlottesville Mayor Mike Singer said on his Twitter feed. "And there was a crowd of people just running with terror on their face".

Dickler said the crash, which involved three cars, happened at Water and 4th streets.

One person was killed and other 19 were injured as a auto plowed into the crowed was holding a march protest to "take America back". Multiple ambulances were on the scene soon after the early-afternoon incident.

Earlier in the day before the fatality, President Trump had condemned violence that erupted between white nationalists and counter-demonstrators.

The state declared the emergency after a big white nationalist rally turned violent in Charlottesville in Virginia. "There is no place for this kind of violence in America", Trump wrote on Twitter.
