Sheriff: Nothing to support criminal behavior in Stewart-Ward crash
The Ontario County sheriff said that as of Monday, there was no evidence of criminal behavior relating to Tony Stewart's fatal collision with Kevin Ward Jr.
The Ontario County sheriff’s department continued with its investigation into the death of Kevin Ward Jr. on Saturday night, and as of Monday afternoon, “there are no facts that exist that support any criminal behavior,” relating to Tony Stewart’s on-track collision with Ward at Canandaigua (N.Y.) Motorsports Park.
Sheriff Philip Povero said that his team currently has two videos of the collision between Stewart’s car and Kevin Ward but that they’re searching for more videos, images and witnesses.
“No timelines set on this. We want to complete this investigation as quickly as possible,” Povero said in a press conference on Monday afternoon. “At this time, there are no facts that exist that support any criminal behavior or conduct or support any probably cause in this investigation.”
“There’s no fact right now that would support someone committed a criminal act.”
Ward Jr., 20, died Saturday night of “massive blunt trauma,” according to the county coroner after he was struck by Stewart’s No. 14 car. Ward had exited his vehicle and was apparently seeking to confront Stewart during a caution period after he’d run him into the wall on the previous lap.
There is currently no timetable for Stewart’s return. He’s already cancelled plans to race in Indiana on Saturday, and he hasn't decided whether he will race on Sunday at Michigan International Speedway.
