However, the event was shut down by authorities in the early afternoon.

The auto attack occurred around 1pm, soon after a state of emergency was declared in the city for the clashes between participants in the march and those opposed to it.

Dramatic video taken after the demonstration was shut down shows crowds walking along a downtown Charlottesville street as several cars move slowly along the same avenue.

Charlottesville Police say the suspect is in custody.

McAuliffe and Charlottesville City Manager Maurice Jones each made reference to "three fatalities" during the press conference, but did not elaborate about the additional two beyond the automobile incident.

The vehicle allegedly plowed through a crowd, and at least one person has died from the incident, following the shutdown of the "Unite the Right" rally by police after white nationalists, neo-Nazis and members of the "alt-right" and counter-protesters clashed near Lee Park, where a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee is slated to be removed.

The controversial "Unite the Right" march was organised to protest the removal of a statue honouring General Robert E Lee, commander of the Confederate Army in the 19th-century American Civil War.

Reported injuries ranged from life-threatening to minor, said Thomas.

The park was renamed Emancipation Park in June.
