Car crash that killed counter protestor treated as 'criminal homicide'

Charlottesville, Va. police are treating the death of a 32-year-old woman as a criminal homicide following a three-vehicle crashed caused by a man driving his car into a crowd of counter-protesters following a white supremacist rally Saturday.

Charlottesville police Chief Al Thomas told reporters the woman's name would not be released until her family had been notified of her death.

"We are currently treating this as a criminal homicide investigation," Thomas told reporters.

Fourteen people were injured in fights amongst white supremacist and leftist protesters.

Two people were killed following the protests when a Virginia State Police helicopter crashed near Charlottesville.
