Lawyer says hit-and-run charge not warranted in deadly Georgia chain reaction crash

MARIETTA, Ga. — 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.
