“It spun like crazy and we flipped, flipped, flipped. It was awful,” she said.
Barnum posted a desperate messages on Facebook asking for help after the truck flipped over:
Barnum says she didn’t know much about Hervey, except that he, like her, was pro-Confederacy, so she gave him a ride to an Alabama rally and let him drive her truck.
“I didn’t know him, really,” Barham said of Hervey. “I gave him a ride to the rally.”
Barnum says her vehicle did not have a Confederate flag decal.
