JACKSON, Miss. (TheBlaze/AP) -- A black Mississippi man who often dressed in Confederate regalia to support the state flag has died in a one-car accident.
The Highway Patrol says 49-year-old Anthony Hervey was killed Sunday when the 2005 Ford Explorer he was driving left the roadway and overturned on Mississippi Highway 6 in Lafayette County.
The vehicle's owner and passenger in the car, Arlene Barnum, tells The Associated Press that Hervey swerved and crashed after another vehicle carrying four or five young black men pulled up alongside them, yelling and looking angry. Barnum, of Stuart, Oklahoma, said Hervey yelled something back at the other vehicle before losing control and crashing.
Barnum later uploaded a video to Facebook after the deadly crash:

She said she gave that account to a Mississippi state trooper when she was taken to a hospital after the accident.
