Father of dead driver questions Stewart
SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — The father of the driver run over and killed by Tony Stewart told The Syracuse Post-Standard that “there’s no reason for” the crash that led to his son’s death. Kevin Ward Jr. was sent into the wall when his car was bumped by Stewart’s in a dirt-track race on Saturday night. Ward got out of the car and walked onto the track, where he was hit by Stewart.
Kevin Ward Sr. told the paper that, “apparently, Tony Stewart was the only one driving out there who didn’t see him.” He added, “the one person that knows what happened that night is possibly facing 10 years in prison. Is he going to say what he done?”
