The death of NASCAR driver Kevin Ward Jr. is such a tragedy for all involved...

by Jessie Hawkins

I can't begin to fathom how Tony Stewart is feeling today or Kevin Ward Jr.'s family, friends and fans. It's a difficult thing to process.

So far it appears that Tony Stewart will not be charged with a crime. Did you see the video? what are your thoughts?

Here is more on the story from Sporting News:

Police officials in Upstate New York say NASCAR driver Tony Stewart is unlikely to be charged with a crime following the deadly accident that killed fellow driver Kevin Ward Jr. Saturday night.

After Ward spun-out into the wall, he got out of his car to confront Stewart who sped around the dirt track struck the 20-year-old. Ward was pronounced dead at the hospital. Though an investigation is continuing, the sheriff's office says, "There is no evidence in hand or no facts that would support a criminal charge or support criminal intent on the part of anybody." In the wake of the accident, Stewart decided to pull out of yesterday's race at Watkins Glen. He released a statement saying, "There arent words to describe the sadness I feel about the accident that took the life of Kevin Ward Jr." He added, "My thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends and everyone affected by this tragedy."
