Chaos erupted in Charlottesville, Virginia, Saturday when white supremacists and alt-right personalities clashed with police and protesters at their “Unite the Right” rally.

The groups began to disperse after Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe declared a “state of emergency,” but as crowds were leaving, a silver Dodge Charger sped through the streets and crashed into one of the crowds.

Charlottesville Mayor Mike Singer confirmed on Twitter that at least one of those hit by the car is dead.

Police stated that they haveĀ detained the driver. However, his/her identity has not been released. Police have also said that several people are in critical condition. The Associated Press reported that 19 people are injured.
