Updated, 5:15 p.m MondayA Canadian man was charged with first degree vehicular homicide and felony hit and run on Monday in connection with a fatal accident on Interstate 75 in Cobb County over the weekend.
Marietta Police said they have spoken over the phone with Dannie Mondor, 52, and encouraged him to turn himself in within the next 24-48 hours, but they do not know his exact location.
Mandor also has been charged with improper lane change in the accident, which was caused when the RV he was driving on I-75 south near Delk Road triggered a multiple-vehicle chain reaction.
A passenger in one of the vehicles, Bradley Braland, 40, of Winter Garden, Fla., died at the scene.
Marietta Police said the current warrant for Mondor has a no-bond and a nationwide extradition clause added. The RV’s registration has been flagged in a national database for law enforcement.
Marietta Police earlier Monday said the RV is a 1999 Spartan Alpine, white and green in color, bearing Florida tags BZR-W69. Police said Mandor owns property in Cape Coral, Fla.
Anyone with information about Mondor's location and the RV's whereabouts should call their local law enforcement or Marietta Police Officer Nickolas Serkedakis at 770-794-5364.
Marietta Police have been able to further identify a recreational vehicle they say caused a deadly chain reaction accident on Interstate 75 Saturday, but need the public's help locating it.
Police said Monday that through tips and witness statements, the vehicle is described as a 1999 Spartan Alpine RV, white and green in color, bearing Florida tags BZR-W69.
The RV could be pulling a trailer with Canadian plates with motorcycles and may have travelled to Florida, police said.
According to police, the RV was traveling southbound on I-75 near Delk Road around 1:45 p.m. Saturday afternoon when it slammed into a Toyota Camry, which then collided with a Toyota Prius.
The Prius hit a median wall and flipped, partially ejecting a 40-year-old Winter Garden, Fla., man, Bradley Braland, who was pronounced dead at the scene. Police said the victim was not wearing a seat belt; the female driver of the Prius suffered minor injuries.
Police ask that anyone who sees the RV to contact the local law enforcement agency in that area.
