Revealing 911 call from driver accused of hit-and-run in Cobb Co.

Posted: Updated:

CBS Atlanta News obtained the 911 call made by a driver accused of hit-and-run and vehicular homicide on I-75 in Marietta.

Dannie Mondor, 52, drove his RV almost ten miles to Howell Mill Road before stopping. He also said he had to find a Verizon store and charge his phone before calling.

At the beginning of his call to 911 he says, "Ah, it's not really an emergency. There was an accident on the highway, ah, a lady was changing lanes and went in front of my RV and then clipped a car."

Officers said Mondor was the one who made an improper lane change causing the multi-vehicle accident. The accident left a father dead and backed up traffic for miles on Saturday.

Mondor went on to say to the dispatcher, "I stopped for fuel and I saw that I had paint on my front bumper and that's when I thought I better call because I thought she went flying by, right in front of me."

The 911 dispatcher asked Mondor if he was involved in an accident, Mondor replied, "I don't think I was but I stopped and I noticed I was, and I had to get my phone charged."

Mondor who's from Canada was driving from Canada to Florida and continued on his trip. He turned himself in to officers on Tuesday.

Mondor appeared before a judge on Wednesday morning. He was denied bond and will remain in custody at the Cobb Co. Jail.

Mondor has been charged with improper lane change, felony hit-and-run, and felony first degree homicide.
