CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBSMiami/AP) — The deaths of two people in a helicopter crash near Charlottesville, Virginia, have been linked to a violent white nationalist rally earlier in the day, according to officials.

It was not immediately clear how the crash was connected to the rally. Corinne Geller, a Virignia State Police spokeswoman, says the pilot and a passenger were killed in the crash Saturday afternoon.

The crash happened just a few hours after a car plowed into a crowd of people protesting against the white nationalist rally. One person was killed and at least two dozen were hurt.
