NASCAR’s Tony Stewart will not face criminal charges in the death of 20-year-old Kevin Ward, a grand jury in upstate New York decided.

District Attorney Michael Tantillo said there were two charges submitted for consideration – manslaughter in the second degree and criminally negligent homicide. Tantillo said the grand jury deliberated for two days before coming to its conclusion.

Stewart could still face a civil suit from Ward’s family. Stewart struck and killed Ward in an August 9 sprint car race at Canandaigua Motorsports Park in upstate New York.
