If you were on Facebook or Twitter for at least 30 seconds yesterday, then you probably caught wind that NASCAR driver Tony Stewart killed 20-year-old Kevin Ward during a sprint car race Saturday night in New York. The very basic information is that Stewart caused Ward to crash – as rednecks tell me is his wont – prompting Ward to walk down the track, with cars still racing, and attempt to confront Stewart whose car connected with him killing him dead. Where the heated discussions start and will ultimately ignite the next Civil War are whether or not Stewart deliberately tried to fishtail like a hardass to scare the shit out of Ward which went horribly wrong, or he actually meant to run him the fuck over, or an idiot walked into the middle of a race track and natural selection happened. Which is apparently where the police are at because they announced yesterday that there are no pending charges for Stewart. SB Nations reports:
The investigation into the incident that killed sprint car driver Kevin Ward Jr. on Saturday night is still ongoing, according to Ontario County (N.Y.) Sheriff Philip C. Povero. At present, no charges are pending against NASCAR driver Tony Stewart, whose car struck Ward. The fatality occurred at Canandaigua Motorsports Park, a dirt track located in upstate New York.
“As we speak at this time, there is no evidence in hand or no facts that would support a criminal charge or support criminal intent on the part of anybody,” Povero said.
