MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) — Police in suburban Atlanta are seeking the driver of a recreational vehicle after a deadly chain-reaction crash that killed a Florida man.

Marietta police say the RV didn't stop after the wreck.

Marietta police Officer David Baldwin says the RV was southbound on Interstate 75 around 1:45 p.m. Saturday, when it struck the back of a Toyota Camry.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports (http://bit.ly/1dzMED6) that the impact caused the Camry's driver to cross all lanes of I-75 and hit a Toyota Prius and two other vehicles.

The Prius struck the median wall and flipped, killing 40-year-old passenger Bradley Braland of Winter Garden, Fla.

Police said Monday morning they've identified the RV as a white and green 1999 Spartan Alpine with Florida license tags. They said it could be pulling a trailer.
