Associated Press Report…Three-time NASCAR champion Tony Stewart will find out next week whether authorities will pursue charges against him in the death of a driver he struck during a sprint car race in upstate New York last month. Ontario County Sheriff Philip Povero said Thursday that his office has completed its investigation and submitted it to the district attorney’s office for review. He did not release the findings. Stewart’s car struck and killed 20-year-old Kevin Ward Jr. at a New York Motorsports Park during a nighttime race Aug. 9. Ward had climbed out of his car and walked onto the dirt track to confront Stewart after he spun out while the two raced side by side. Povero said early on that his initial findings turned up nothing that would indicate criminal intent in the crash, but legal experts have said that does not mean Stewart is in the clear. Stewart could be charged with second-degree manslaughter under New York law if prosecutors believe he “recklessly caused the death of another person,” with negligent homicide another possibility.
