WELLINGTON, FL (WFLX) - The parents of UCF grad Scott Wilson are heartbroken and angry.

"I am never going to be able to hug him again," said Lili Wilson, Scott's mother.

While they looked at a make-shift memorial in their son's honor, they wondered 'What if?'

The medical examiner ruled the 23-year-old died from drowning after Palm Beach County Sheriff's detectives say John Goodman ran through a Wellington stop sign. His Bentley struck Wilson's Hyundai causing the vehicle to flip over and land upside down in a canal.

"Could anyone have done something with-in that period of time to get out and possibly save his life?," asked Lili Wilson.

Investigators claim the Texas millionaire and International Polo founder walked away from the crash.

Alcohol or drugs are suspected factors, but no charges have been filed in the Friday morning crash.

"To have avoided any process at this point is kind of unique I think, strange to me," said William Wilson, Scott's father.

DUI defense attorney Cory Strolla, who has no involvement in this case, says a delay in charges is normal.

He holds a thick booklet, the case for another recent DUI Manslaughter case which took several weeks to compile.

"The reason being, the Sheriff's Office has to do a thorough investigation. They have to wait for toxicology reports and that is the key to their whole investigation," said Strolla.
