NASCAR driver Tony Stewart allegedly ran over and killed a competitor on Saturday night. The victim, Kevin Ward Jr., was 20 years old.
Both Stewart and Ward were taking part in a sprint car race at Canandaigua Motorsports Park in New York. During the race, Stewart’s and Ward’s cars collided, which sent Ward’s car spinning. Ward exited his car and was seen gesturing at Stewart. That’s when Stewart allegedly ran over Ward and sent him flying across the track. Ward was pronounced dead by the time he arrived at the hospital.

A video of the incident was posted on YouTube, but has since been taken down. However, you can still watch it over at Deadspin. Warning: It is graphic.
