tony stewart hits kills car race driver kevin ward jr

This is the LEAST he could do after such a horrible accident!

Race car driver Tony Stewart was competing at Canandaigua (N.Y.) Motorsports Park on Saturday night, when there was a little accident.

His car bumped Kevin Ward Jr.’s, but Ward was okay… until he got out of his car to confront Stewart.

By that time, Stewart was making his way back around the track, and his car HIT Ward, sending him flying, and resulting in his death!

So tragic!!!

Stewart — who is known for being a hothead throughout his career — pulled out of his NASCAR race at Watkins Glen on Sunday as a result.

His statement was very simple, saying:

"There aren’t words to describe the sadness I feel about the accident that took the life of Kevin Ward Jr. It’s a very emotional time for all involved, and it is the reason I’ve decided not to participate in today’s race at WGI. My thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends and everyone affected by this tragedy.”

NASCAR released their own statement, essentially saying they support Tony’s choice.

The police were initially brought in to see if there were any charges to make, but Sheriff Philip Povero said that none are pending at this time.

You can see the video of the accident (below), but be warned because it is very graphic.

Our thoughts and prayer’s are with Ward’s friends and family, and Tony’s team as well, as everyone sorts through this sudden and tragic situation.

    I think that people are looking at this wrong. There was a guy standing on the race course. Tony did not go out of his way to hit him. The guy was charging at him like an angry bull.

    Exactly. Perez states that Stewart is a "hothead" (true) but never mentions Ward being the hothead in this case and paid dearly. Perez too busy to think before he talks.

    Why would he walk out on a race track to confront someone in a race whose in their car driving at high speeds?! Sorry but that dude was an idiot and pretty much did this to himself.

    Seriously who in their right mind gets out of a car to confront another while a race is still going on??? It's sad all around but to say that's the least he could do??? I'm sure this is tearing him up have a little respect for everyone involved.

    I'm not a racing fan…. But my first thought is if you are in a crash stay in the car don't run after others in motion. Sorry for the guy and his surviving family members but it's his own fault.

    There is no way Tony did that out of anger, it is obvious that he didnt see him till the last second. yes he has a history of being a hot head, buy tony is also a great guy and Im sure the he is devistated and feels horrible, I pray for everyone involved.

    Ward should have stayed in his car or quickly crossed the track into the infield - not stand in the middle of the track . He killed himself.
