A story from TWC News in Rochester reports that investigators have now reviewed two videos of they incident involving Tony Stewart and Kevin Ward Jr. Ontario County Sheriff Phil Povero said in the story that there are two different angles of Ward walking on the track after a crack at turn two on the 14th lap and then being hit by Stewart's winged sprint car.
Investigators still say that there are no facts to support criminal behavior or conduct, or probable cause in the crash. They emphasized, however, that the investigation is open.
Sprint car driver Cory Sparks has come forward with his side of the story, telling about the angle he witnessed of the event. Sparks said, "From what I saw, Tony did everything in his power to turn down away from Kevin to avoid him. People say that they heard the engine rev up and he gassed it. In a sprint car, the only way to steer is you steer with the rear wheels as much as you do the steering wheel. In my opinion, what he did was he gassed it to turn down away from him."
Sparks also noted in the article that the videos posted online don't give an accurate portrayal of what happened. There was no video in Stewart's car.
This is a slow motion video of the Tony Stewart - Kevin Ward incident. It looks like he jumped up and grabbed Stewart's wing, lost his grip and then fell. Watch around the 11 second mark!
Multiple sources report that an autopsy conducted by the Ontario County coroner found that Ward's cause of death to be massive blunt trauma.
The general media has analyzed this incident from every angle, the majority of whom are totally ignorant of sprint car racing and racing in general.
Most respected reporters have acknowledged the fact that they don't know enough about the sport to give an opinion. There are, however, the usual assholes that will give their opinion whether they are knowledgeable or not.
That's it for now. More soon.
