A grand jury will decide whether NASCAR driver Tony Stewart will be charged in the August death of a fellow driver at a sprint car race in upstate New York. Ontario County District Attorney Michael Tantillo said Tuesday that after reviewing evidence collected by sheriff's investigators, he has decided to present it to a grand jury. Tantillo could have determined there was not enough evidence to support charges and dropped the case.

Stewart's car struck and killed Kevin Ward Jr. at a dirt track race in Canandaigua on Aug. 9 after the 20-year-old had climbed from his car, which had spun out while racing alongside Stewart. Stewart issued a statement saying he looks forward to the process being completed and will continue to cooperate with officials.
