Police have named the 20-year-old man who drove into a crowd of people in Charlottesville, Va., Saturday, killing one and injuring 19 following a white supremacist rally.

James Alex Fields, a 20-year-old from Maumee, Ohio, is being held in the Albermarle-Charlottesville County Regional Jail. He's been charged with one count of second degree murder, three counts of malicious wounding, and one count of hit and run attended failure to stop with injury.

Earlier in the day, white supremacists were scheduled to hold a rally in Emancipation Park called "Unite The Right." The protest was supposed to show unhappiness with the decision of the town to remove a statute of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee, but it became a gathering point for white supremacists around the country.

That led to counter-protests from anti-fascist and other leftist groups. Clashes between the two sides took place throughout the morning, and local and state authorities eventually declared a state of emergency.

Police then declared the rally an "unlawful assembly" and shut it down.

The white supremacist and leftist protesters then fanned out into the town in different areas. The crash took place as leftist protesters were making their way through crowded city streets.

Video shows counter-protesters walking down a crowded street around some cars that are attempting to drive through but are stopped by the crowd. A silver vehicle, allegedly driven by Fields came up at a much higher rate of speed and plows into the back of a vehicle, shoving it and another vehicle forward into the crowd.

Fields allegedly then backed his car up at a high rate of speed and flees the area.
