A black Confederate flag supporter died after having been run off the road.
Anthony Hervey of Mississippi, who often dressed in Confederate regalia and supported the flag, died in a car accident on Sunday when a 2005 Ford Explorer he was driving overturned.
Hervey, 49, swerved and crashed the vehicle after a group of young black men pulled beside the truck and began yelling at Hervey, says passenger Arlene Barnum.
“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.
