Investigation into death of Kevin Ward Jr. to continue

Created: 08/29/2014 2:32 PM WHEC.com

Ontario County sheriffs say the investigation into the death of Kevin Ward Jr. at Canandaigua Motorsports Park will continue for at least another two weeks. This information came shortly after NASCAR’s Tony Stewart made a statement about the accident on Friday afternoon.

Investigators say they have reviewed the information with members of the District Attorney’s Office and will continue to do so as more information becomes available.

Sheriffs say Stewart struck and killed Ward after he got out of his car and walked onto the track earlier this month.

We’ll continue to keep you updated as more information becomes available.
