We don't know for sure what happened yet, but this looks like a deliberate attack on the counter-protesters; a gray automobile with all the windows blacked out ran full speed into a crowd, crashed into the back of another car, then reversed and backed out quickly.

Meanwhile, this is how Donald Trump responds:

We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for. There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one!

Am in Bedminster for meetings & press conference on V.A. & all that we have done, and are doing, to make it better-but Charlottesville sad!

In the meantime the police are asking private citizens with video of the car to share them with authorities. They have arrested the driver
