Kevin Ward Jr. Dead at 20 After Being Hit by Racer Tony Stewart
While racing in his car, the 20-year-old driver was hit by Tony‘s car during the race and he spun out of control.
Kevin then decided to get out of the car and ran towards Tony‘s car as he made the next lap around the track. He was clipped by the car and dragged under it for several yards.
The Ontario County Sheriff’s Office has confirmed that Kevin was declared dead upon arrival at the hospital, which was 45 minutes after the accident happened.
“Mr. Stewart has cooperated with the investigation, which is ongoing,” the release stated. “He is very upset and confirmed his continuing cooperation.”
