The rally was originally meant as a protest over the planned removal of a statue honoring Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

A Dodge Challenger (pictured) plows into counter protesters, killing one woman and hospitalizing 19 others.

A car then plowed into a crowd of people peacefully protesting at the rally.

Police later identified the person who was arrested as James Alex Fields Jr., 20, of Ohio, and said he is charged with second-degree murder and other counts.

The Democratic governor said he had spoken to President Donald Trump, a Republican, and twice urged him to bring people together. The group carried torches at a rally Friday night.

Several hundred protesters were marching when the car appeared to deliberately drive into a group of them, The Associated Press reported. The goal of the controversial event was to unify the far-right wing and "affirm the right of Southerners and white people to organize for their interests", according to its Facebook page.

Early Saturday, Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency as violence escalated.
