    A hot headed 20 year old who thought he was invincible and learned the hard way he wasn't. It's sad but to spend the time and energy on a grand jury seems a bit ridiculous.

    I doubt they found anything, this is about covering the ass of the police and DA. The grand jury is made up of every day people, it's harder for the media to accuse them of taking bribes or looking the other way for NASCAR. The elected officials have votes and campaign donations to worry about.

    [The Ontario County District Attorney's office took the evidence in Stewart's case to a grand jury, which found there was no basis for criminal charges, D.A. Michael Tantillo announced Wednesday.
    Tantillo said toxicology reports revealed that Ward was under the influence of marijuana at a high enough level to impair judgment.]


    Hmmmm. Is this new? I quit following the story.

    I doubt anything further will come of this in terms of civil suits and whatnot.

    Kid deserved it anyway. If he was racing while high he could've just as easily killed someone else or killed himself.

    RIP Asshole

    It's an unfortunate event that could have been avoided. I wonder if anyone knew he was lighting up before the race? I could see where they might be held liable.

    Doug, how so? Any impaired driver is at 50/50 risk if personal injury, death, or injuring or killing someone else.
    He compounded his odds of accident further still just by being on a raceway with many other vehicles in close proximity and driving at high speeds.

    Is that not the definition of "if you play with fire, you're going to get burned?" I'm not saying the kid was the devil and deserved to die, sure he was a great person in life. But if you make the choices he made that night in that environment and you pay the price for it, I would say he got exactly what he deserved. Darwin doesn't reward being a complete idiot.

    If Stewart ran him down and tested to be under the influence of drugs/alcohol he'd be in prison.

    Only referring to you're "deserved it". I don't think he "deserved it" is all personally he was dumb as fuck getting out of car in the first place so like I said the outcome is no surprise..

    Gotcha. You're one of the more rational old men I've ever seen so I wondered if I was missing something you weren't. We agree here.

    Wow! Didn't see that in any of the news stories until now. Talk about the wrong place, wrong time, and wrong drug. If this is correct, Ward was totally irresponsible with his life and the lives others.
    I wonder if the grand jury was held to see if there were also any charges that Ward may have faced. I know charging a dead man is pointless, but mitigating circumstances are always considered. "At fault" is often a matter of percentages than an actual clear cut decision.

    My 2¢.... If he smoked pot semi regularly or regularly then honestly I don't think that had anything to do with what happened. How can they say for sure he was impaired at the time, he could have been at a Bob Marley festival :rasta: the weekend before and smoked way too much, that stuff stays in ur system for 30 days or more... Never heard of a test to tell u how high or how impaired from weed someone is. If it was like first time or first in s long time I could see him being a lil impaired. Sad that this is going to define what happened in some people's eyes. Dumb move getting out sober of high. He payed the consequences!
