A man who survived a Florida car crash that killed his girlfriend is demanding the driver of a Tesla Model S is prosecuted after he was allowed to go free from the horrific site, simply telling police he hadn't been driving but had been driving his vehicle in cruise.
George McGee from Boca Raton is heard on bodycam from a law enforcement officer saying he was coming from his office when he blew through a stop sign, red light, and hit a stop sign before managing to hit the couple's vehicle which was parked 40 feet off the road.
Dillon Angulo, 27, is seen being worked on by emergency responders in the video released by officials and they are heard communicating that Naibel Benavides Leon, 22, was thrown into the bushes due to the force of the Tesla that hit as they stood outside their truck where Card Sound Road intersects with County Road 905.
McGee is later heard telling cops he was driving in 'cruise', which Tesla calls their Traffic Aware Cruise Control.

He says on video that he took his hands off the wheel and that's when things went awry.
McGee said: 'I reached down, I didn't see it and when I popped up, I saw a black truck just happened so fast.'
However police allowed McGee to leave the scene of the collision without testing him for driving under the
