Marietta police are searching for the driver of a motorhome involved in a severe accident this afternoon close to the Delk Road Exit, on Interstate 75, FOX News reports.
According to the Marietta Police Department (MPD), at around 1:45 p.m. on Saturday, the driver of a champagne, tan, and green-colored motorhome was in the process of changing lanes on I-75 South, near the Delk Road exit, when the motorhome ended up smashing into the back of a Toyota Camry. The Camry spinned out of control and hit into a black Toyota Prius. After the Camry hit the Prius, the Prius rolled over at least twice, hitting two other vehicles in the process.
The passenger in the Prius, 40-year-old Bradley Braland, of Florida, was ejected from the vehicle and died at the scene. Braland was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident. His wife, whose name has not yet been identified, was driving the Prius. She was taken to Marietta's Wellstar Kennestone Hospital with minor abrasions. The couple's 4-year-old son was properly restrained in the backseat and was unharmed.
The driver of the motorhome didn't stop after hitting Camry, and continued down I-75 South. So far, the identity and condition of the Camry driver has not been released.
The motorhome more than likely has front end damage to the right front quarter panel because of the severity of the accident. It was also described as being "box-topped." Anyone with any information is urged to call Officer Nick Serkedakis of the MPD at 770-794-5266.
