A black pro-Confederate-flag activist from Oxford, Miss., reportedly died in a car crash after believing he was being chased, the Clarion-Ledger reports.

According to the report, Anthony Hervey, 49, was a fixture in Oxford, known for his support of the Confederate flag, for at least the last two decades. Hervey had attended a flag rally on Sunday and was driving back in the vehicle of an acquaintance when the crash occurred.

The McAlester News-Capital reported that Arlene Barnum, who owned the vehicle that Hervey was driving and was a passenger at the time, posted that the pair were being chased just before the crash, in which the car rolled over.

“HELP.. They after us. My vehicle inside down,” Barnum wrote in one post.

Later she posted again, saying, “Anthony pinned in… gas leaking,” before finally posting a picture of the overturned vehicle.
