Car crashes into crowd protesting against white supremacists march in Virginia
Despite a state of emergency being called, the situation continues to deteriorate

The situation in Charlottesville has continued to deteriorate throughout the day.

On Saturday, a "Unite the Right" march took place in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Following early reports of violence between white supremacists and peaceful protesters, a state of emergency was declared in the area, but even that did nothing to stem the issue.

Some of the people present were recording the protest when a car suddenly rammed into the crowd, causing a multi-vehicle accident, before reversing and rapidly speeding away.

There has been no confirmation of the number of people injured in the incident, or the extent of those injuries.
