COBB COUNTY, Ga. - Marietta police are investigating a fatal hit-and-run crash that killed one person on Interstate 75 at Delk Road Saturday afternoon.

According to police, a multicolored (champagne, tan and bluish green) box-style RV with a flat front was traveling in the middle lanes of I-75 southbound when it changed lanes and struck the left-rear quarter panel of a white Toyota Camry.  The driver of the Camry lost control of the vehicle and crossed all lanes of I-75 where it struck a black Toyota Prius.  The Prius then stuck the median wall and flipped, causing the front-seat passenger, who was not wearing a seat belt, to be partially ejected from the vehicle.

Two other vehicles were struck by the Camry after it lost control during the accident, but no other injuries were reported.

The front seat passenger of the Prius, identified as Bradley Braland, 40, of Winter Garden, Fla., was pronounced deceased at the scene.  The female driver of the Prius suffered minor injuries and was transported to Kennestone Hospital.  A 4-year-old boy in the back seat of the Prius was not injured in the crash. 

The RV that caused the crash should have damage to the right-front quarter panel.  Investigators are asking anyone that may have witnessed the crash or who may have seen the RV in question to please contact Officer Nick Serkedakis at 770-794-5266.
