The 32-year-old woman killed when a car drove into a crowd of people in Charlottesville, Va. on Saturday is Heather Heyer, according to a GoFundMe account and multiple media reports.
Heyer was a paralegal from Virginia and police say she was killed when James Fields, 20 of Ohio, drove his Dodge Charger into a crowd of people following a white supremacist rally Saturday.
Heyer was there as a counter-protester. She was among 20 people who were taken to area hospitals following the crash and died from her injuries Saturday afternoon.
Fields faces charges of second-degree murder, among others. He's being held in a local Charlottesville jail.
Heyer was the first person killed in connection with Saturday's rally, but two other people also lost their lives during the afternoon.
Lieutenant H. Jay Cullen, 48, and Berke M.M. Bates, 40, were both killed when their Virginia State Police helicopter crashed near Charlottesville. The two state troopers were hovering over the protests during the day and the helicopter they were in crashed in a residential area around 6 p.m. Saturday.
The investigation into that crash is ongoing.
