The family of Kevin Ward Jr. claims sprint car racer Tony Stewart “could have easily acted reasonably and with prudence to avoid striking Ward, just as all other drivers had done”.
The lawsuit also alleges Tony Stewart “acted with disregard” to Kevin Ward Jr’s life as he accelerated his car, “driving his vehicle in a manner that would terrorize Ward and thereafter strike, severely injure and kill Ward.”
The lawsuit against Stewart continues to state, “At all times herein, Defendant Stewart was engaged in the business of being a professional race car driver. Stewart was gifted with unique race car driving skills and possessed extreme skill and control over his race car.”
“Defendant agreed to abide by the customs and norms of race car driving, which included hot to prudently and safely operate a race car during a yellow caution.”
“Stewart committed acts of omission and commission, which collectively and severally constituted negligence and/or recklessness. Stewart’s negligence and/or recklessness was a proximate cause of the death, personal injuries, and other damages suffered by Decedent and his Estate.”
“The negligence and/or recklessness of the Defendant, Tony Stewart, and his violation of reasonable and prudent standards of a race car driver (standards the were followed by all other passing drivers), caused Stewart to run over Ward, and resulted in Decedent Kevin A. Ward, Jr., to undergo terror before being severely injured and suffering extreme pain, and ultimately death.”
