CAPE CORAL, Fla. --- The Cape Coral man man accused of causing a deadly accident in Georgia, and driving off, is now in custody in Cobb County jail.
Dannie Mondor is in there on no bail.
Mondor was driving an RV on I-75 near Atlanta this weekend, when police say, he crashed into a car and kept going.
Mondor's girlfriend was in the passenger seat at the time of the crash. She said the couple were coming back from a vacation in Canada. That's where Mondor is from. He owns property in Cape Coral.
"You told me what happened, I just about had a heart attack."
Rose Fetcho, Mondor's Cape Coral neighbor says she never had any problem with the man, or his girlfriend.
She says the pair have always been nice and quiet, never gave her a problem.
She was shocked when we told her he was being charged with felony hit and run.
Cape Coral Police currently have Mondor's RV in their impound lot.
They picked it up on 4th Terrace Street late Sunday night, which is where the couple lives.
"It took up the front of the yard here so I thought somebody called the cops because you couldn't really see to pull out because the RV is so big," said Fetcho.
Georgia authorities say mondor was driving that RV at the time of the accident.
But Mondor's girlfriend says they reported the accident.
WINK News checked with Atlanta Police, Mondor did in fact tell them he was involved in a two car accident.
He said he drove down several exits past the scene, and then reported the accident.
He did not know of any injuries.
