Home / National News / Grand Jury to Decide on Tony Stewart Case


(NEW YORK) — NASCAR star Tony Stewart may face criminal charges in a fatal accident that killed a Sprint car driver.

After a review of evidence, prosecutors in Ontario County, New York said it would be best for a grand jury to decide whether Stewart should be charged in last month’s accident that killed Kevin Ward on a dirt track in Canandaigua. Ward had climbed out of his car and onto the track to confront Stewart.

Stewart said he respects the decision to send his case to a grand jury and, in a statement Tuesday, pledged his “full cooperation.”

It’s not immediately clear when the grand jury would convene or whether Stewart will testify.
