As many were off to bed on a Saturday evening, the track in Canandaigua, NY was still roaring away with race cars hauling down the track. Amongst the chaos, NASCAR driver Tony Stewart slammed into 20-year-old Kevin Ward Jr. which caused several injuries that eventually took his life later that night. As many continue to speculate as to whether or not the fault lies with Tony Stewart, the Ontario County Sherriff has since announced that they don’t have plans to speak with Stewart again.
As explained, they were able to get all they needed from Stewart amongst the discussions held with him both on Saturday night and Sunday. They state that it is not within their intentions to speak with him again unless evidence rendering such a reality were to surface.
According to WMDU:
The sheriff said yesterday that investigators don’t have any evidence to support criminal intent, but that criminal charges haven’t been ruled out. He has appealed for spectators to turn over photos and videos of the crash — amid questions about whether Stewart was trying to intimidate Ward by driving too close to him, only to have the risky move turn fatal.
Although he’s thus far cancelled a dirt track race he was supposed to compete in next Saturday in Indiana, he has yet to come forward with his plans for the NASCAR race in Michigan. What do you guys think of this entire ordeal? Feel free to let us know in the comments below.
