Officials have revealed that Kevin Ward Jr. was high on marijuana during his fatal car crash with NASCAR’s Tony Stewart.
This may explain Ward’s erratic behavior before his death. Video footage shows the young racer marching towards Stewart’s vehicle just before it fatally struck the 20 year old.
A grand jury decided on Tuesday that Stewart will not face charges for killing Ward. Though investigator’s claimed they had enhanced video that would prove that Stewart purposely hit Ward, the jury wasn’t buying it.
Perhaps this new information about Ward’s drug use factored into their decision.
