The auto that allegedly plowed through a crowd of protestors marching through a downtown shopping district is seen after the vehicle was stopped by police several blocks away August 12, 2017 in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The crash on a downtown pedestrian mall Saturday left a 32-year-old woman dead and sent 19 others to a local hospital, five of them in critical condition.

The Washington Post reported that James Alex Fields Jr., who last lived in Maumee, near Toledo, owned the auto used in the attack.

Fields, 20, from OH, is facing charges of second-degree murder, malicious woundings and failure to stop at the scene of an accident that resulted in a death.

A 20-year-old man has been arrested in the USA state of Virginia, accused of driving his auto into a crowd of protesters and killing a woman.

The driver of the Challenger was taken into custody and charges were pending, said Al Thomas, the Charlottesville police chief. His name was not immediately released.

Charlottesville has become a flashpoint for white nationalists following a City Council vote in February to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee from a park formerly called Lee Park. "We will tell our own story".
