Citizen journalist Faith Goldy was reporting live from the streets of Charlottesville when she captured a major car accident and protesters of a “white nationalist” rally being hit.

Goldy’s Periscope video shows a demonstrator on the hood of a car as it was being pushed from behind by another vehicle.
The video shows the car that rear ended the vehicle immediately speeding away in reverse.
The scene was immediately chaos as the injured lay on the ground and others attempted to flee the scene.
“A lot of people got hit,” Goldy reported.
Blood could be seen on the hood of one of the cars involved:
