(CANANDAIGUA, N.Y.) — Ontario County Sheriff Philip Povero said Tuesday that an investigation remains ongoing into the fatal racing accident involving Tony Stewart last Saturday.
“The investigation…is ongoing and is expected to continue for at least another two weeks,” Povero said. He noted that investigators are continuing to seek out witnesses, collect evidence and develop a reconstruction of the crash, which occurred at Canandaigua Motorsports Park in New York and claimed the life of 20-year-old Kevin Ward Jr.
Thus far, Povero tells ABC News, investigators have received two videos from spectators at Saturday’s race. As of Tuesday morning, they had not found evidence of criminal intent.
Not much has changed in the early days of the investigation. However, Povero says, investigators will continue to analyze the evidence they have collected thus far and will continue to investigate thoroughly.
