Car rams Charlottesville crowd after protests: What we know now

At least one person is dead and 19 injured after a car plowed into a crowd at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va. Saturday.

Violence had broken out earlier in the day as the groups that planned the "Unite the Right" rally were met with counter protesters.

Here's what we know now:

What happened?

After police had cleared out the protest site, a silver Dodge Charger plowed into one of the groups streaming away from the rally.

How many were injured?

At least one person was killed and 19 more were injured, Angela Taylor, a public information officer at the University of Virginia Medical Center, told USA TODAY.

The conditions of the other 19 were not yet determined.

Where is the driver now?

The driver has been taken into custody, Virginia Secretary of Public Safety Brian Moran said. Moran did not immediately provide a name of the driver.

Why was there a protest?

White supremacist, alt-right, neo-Nazi and pro-Confederate groups were protesting the planned removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee in Emancipation Park.

What was President Trump's response?

President Trump denounced the violence, declaring that the "hatred and division must stop.''

"I condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of violence and bigotry on many sides," he added.

Trump made his comments while also announcing his intention to sign a new Veterns Affairs bill. 

Is this the first white supremacist rally in Charlottesville?

Beyond Saturday's planned rally, Charlottesville has been at the center of multiple white supremacist marches recently. 

Several dozen torch-wielding demonstrators, led by prominent white supremacist Richard Spencer, gathered by the Lee statue on May 13 to protest the vote for its removal. 

In July, Ku Klux Klan members held a rally in Charlottesville in Justice Park, where they were met with more than a thousand upset counter-protesters.

Statues of Confederate leaders nationwide have been removed in recent years as communities viewed them as symbols of slavery, but a USA TODAY analysis in May found that more than 700 Confederate monuments in 31 states still stand.

What happened on UVA's campus?

On Friday night, torch-wielding protesters held a march on the University of Virginia's campus. One arrest was made and several were injured after violence broke out. One of the injured was a UVA police officer hurt while making an arrest.

UVA President Teresa Sullivan “strongly condemned” the “intimidating and abhorrent behavior displayed by the alt-right protestors” on campus Friday night, and reaffirmed the university’s commitment to diversity and inclusion, as well as to First Amendment rights, the university said.
