According to authorities, Pressey left the scene but called 911. He was still on the phone when he returned to the crash scene and saw paramedics attempting to save Bhetwal's life, the Sun-Sentinel reported.
Pressey said he left the accident scene because he had to drop someone off, the newspaper reported. Pressey later allegedly admitted to police he had no passengers, but had to "drop off his weed," the Sun-Sentinel reported.
Pressey remains in jail in lieu of a $20,000 bond, according to the Sheriff's Office.
