The sickening moment a white supremacist drove into crowds was caught on camera by a woman whose fiance saved her life by pushing her out of the way.

Marissa Blair was live-streaming on Facebook when she was almost hit by a speeding Dodge Challenger while at a counter-protest in Charlottesville on Saturday.

The 27-year-old was heroically saved by her fiance Marcus Martin, 26, when he pushed her out of the car’s path, breaking his leg in the selfless action.

Her shocking video shows the moment before the vehicle ramed into innocent people and the tragic aftermath of the incident.

Before the car struck, the video shows peaceful counter-protesters walking down the streets of the city, chanting, laughing and having a good time, Blair said.

She added to the DailyMail.com: ‘We were saying, “Whose streets? Our streets!” and just having a good time. We were right at the intersection, deciding to go right or left. We went left.

‘We hear a commotion from the top of the street. It happened so fast. I felt myself shoved out of the way. [Martin] had pushed me out of the way.’ 

The heart-stopping footage shows Blair being shoved away from the street and onto the sidewalk, as the videos shakes while the crowd runs for safety.

Blair realizes that Martin isn’t with her and begins screaming out his name, trying to find him. In a panic, she says to a friend, ‘Where is he, Marcus?’

The video shows Blair moving through the throngs of injured people, looking for Martin when the video suddenly cuts off.

She added: ‘It was so fast. All he could think was to push me. He saved me then he was under the car. I checked myself and then immediately thought, where’s Marcus?

‘I started looking where the car had hit people. I saw his hat had blood all over it but he wasn’t there. I found him with no blood on him.

‘We were taken to the hospital and I overheard someone say that the heavyset woman who they were doing CPR on had died. 

‘I started asking around but I knew that it was my friend Heather. She had been standing right in front of Marcus.’

Blair continued: ‘It was senseless. People said we were wrong for being there but it was that guy who was wrong. Why would anyone think that it’s okay to do this? He rammed into us.’  

Other videos from the scene show the Dodge Challenger, which is registered to James Alex Fields Jr, accelerating into the crowd throwing bodies into the air as people scream before reversing at high speed.

Another clip showed the vehicle ramming into the crowd at high speed and victims crying out in pain as they desperately sought medical help.

Witnesses said the car was traveling up to 40mph when it hit and reversed before ramming into the crowd again and speeding off with Martin’s shoe attached to its bumper.
