Multiple injuries are being reported this afternoon, as a vehicle has struck a group of protesters fighting against white supremacy in Charlottesvillle, Virginia.

Officials say there are multiple injuries after a auto plowed into a group of people marching peacefully in downtown Charlottesville. The number of injuries has not been immediately disclosed.
