This is a pretty sad deal... maybe now the various racing series will stop drivers from getting out of their cars while other cars are still moving on the track... frankly I'm surprised this hasn't happened more often...

 

 

In a tragic collision, NASCAR driver Tony Stewart hit and killed sprint car driver Kevin Ward Jr., who was walking on a racetrack in upstate New York on Saturday night, authorities said.
 
Ontario County Sheriff Philip Povero said Ward was dead on arrival at an area hospital, Fox Sports reported.
 
According to The Associated Press, Povero is not treating the investigation as criminal and Stewart is "fully cooperative" and appeared "very upset" over the incident.
 
Stewart's team spokesman called the death a "tragic accident." Stewart, 43, was questioned and released, according to Povero.
 
Tyler Graves, another driver and a friend of Ward's who was in the stands at the time, told Sporting News that he did not believe that Stewart intended to hit Ward.

I'm seeing a lot of writers attacking Smoke over this deal... obviously they don't know anything about racing...
