What do you get when angry people drive giant metal boxes at high speeds in close proximity to more angry people? For some, it was only a matter of time before Tony Stewart’s temper caused some actual harm on the track — which it seemed to do this weekend when he now infamously hit and killed 20-year-old fellow competitor Kevin Ward who was standing in the middle of the track.
All and all, a messy situation with no sign of resolution in the near future.
For the family of the deceased driver, however, things seem pretty clear at this point: Stewart was at fault. Though we’re not in the business of exposing the thoughts of bereaved relatives, this particular Facebook rant seems rather relevant to the on-going national discussion surrounding the incident.
Police aren’t currently pursuing any criminal charges for Stewart, although that certainly may change.
