Three-time Nascar champion Tony Stewart has struck and killed a 20-year-old race car driver, Kevin Ward Jr, 20, during a local sprint race in New York.

The younger driver died after being struck by the car of Tony Stewart while standing in the race tracks.

According  to eyewitnesses, Stewart and Ward had collided on a previous lap of the dirt track race on Saturday. Ward then climbed out of his car to show his displeasure and was on track confronting Stewart when he was suddenly struck and thrown into the air by Stewart's car.

Meanwhile, Stewart was unhurt, and plans to race Sunday in the NASCAR event at Watkins Glen, his manager Greg Zipadelli said, calling it "business as usual."

Ontario County Sheriff Philip Povero said his department's investigation is not criminal and that Stewart was "fully cooperative" and appeared "very upset" over what had happened.
