Police find RV, seek Canadian suspect after crash
By The Associated Press
MARIETTA - Police investigating a deadly chain-reaction crash say they've found an RV they believe was involved in a deadly chain-reaction crash on Interstate 75 outside Atlanta.
Marietta police say they received a tip the RV was in Florida, and officers located it with help from police in Cape Coral, Fla.
Investigators say their suspect is a 52-year-old Canadian citizen who owns property in Cape Coral. Police say he's been charged with vehicular homicide and hit-and-run.
The suspect's lawyer told them his client plans to turn himself in at the Cobb County Jail sometime Tuesday, Marietta police said. Though investigators have been in touch with the suspect's attorney, "no confirmation as to his whereabouts or his intentions can be made at this time," Marietta police spokesman David Baldwin said.
Investigators have also spoken by telephone with the suspect and made him aware of the charges, police said. They say they've encouraged him to turn himself in, but where unsure of his whereabouts.
The RV struck a Toyota Camry on Interstate 75 northwest of Atlanta Saturday, police have said. Killed in the chain-reaction crash was 40-year-old Bradley Braland of Winter Garden, Fla. Police say the RV didn't stop.
