The alleged driver of the auto that plowed into a group of counterprotesters in Charlottesville has been booked on suspicion of second-degree murder.

Authorities in Virginia said late Saturday that an OH man had been booked into jail on murder and other charges, but did not say whether he was the driver who plowed into a crowd of people protesting a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville.

Fields was booked into the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail and faces possible charges of second-degree murder, malicious wounding, failure to stop for an accident involving a death, and hit and run.

Thomas told reporters a 32-year-old woman was killed while she was crossing the street. Her identity has not been released to the public yet because her next of kin have not yet been notified.

A 32-year-old woman died when a vehicle was driven into the crowd during the anti-rally protest earlier today.

Police said the helicopter was helping law enforcement officers monitor the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville.

The group had gathered to protest plans to remove a statue of the Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

Police said only that the crash is under investigation and have not commented on specific aspects of the crash.
