  • Virginia Protest

A 20-year-old OH man has been charged with murder after allegedly plowing into a crowd of counter-protesters at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va.

Moments later, "We heard a auto going incredibly fast down the road and saw it plow into the crowd, and then it reversed back".

Video shot by bystanders showed the auto accelerating and smashing into the crowd and another vehicle and then rapidly reversing in an attempt to escape.

A New Zealander in Virginia has described the horror of watching a vehicle plough into protesters.

"People ran in to help and then it went into reverse and came back and hit those people that were moving to assist others".

A friend of Virginia Governor candidate Tom Perriello, Mr Mahony was there to support the man who represented the 5th District of Virginia in Congress, in which Charlottesville is the main town.

"You had people literally in military fatigues walking around so that is an incredibly intimidating environment".

Mr Mahoney said President Donald Trump "was effective in providing [white nationalists] a villain to direct their anger at" - those who aren't white.
