MARIETTA — The lawyer for a motorist accused of hit-and-run and vehicular homicide in Marietta says his client did stop after a deadly chain-reaction accident and gave a statement to police in Atlanta, a few miles south of the crash site.

Lawyer Scott Semrau says 52-year-old Dannie Albert Mondor provided the Atlanta officer with information about the crash and his personal information.

Semrau called the charges the result of a lack of communication between the two departments.

Mondor, a Canadian citizen, turned himself in Tuesday after police located his recreational vehicle in Cape Coral, Fla., and contacted him.

Police said the RV struck a Toyota Camry on Interstate 75 northwest of Atlanta Saturday. The Camry struck a Prius, which hit the median and flipped. Killed was 40-year-old Bradley Braland of Winter Garden, Fla.

Maybe in Canada it's OK to cause a wreck, leave the scene and drive into another jurisdiction and report it, but this is Georgia.

Poopycock! The only way I buy that excuse is if the accident happened at a countyline and the collision knocked Mondor into the next county. (Been there!) Otherwise, he still leave the scene of a fatal accident and that constitutes hit-&-run in my book.
