CANANDAIGUA, N.Y. (AP) - 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 made the announcement after reviewing evidence collected by sheriff's investigators.

Stewart's car struck and killed Kevin Ward Jr. at a dirt-track race in Canandaigua (kan-un-DAY'-gwuh) on Aug. 9. The 20-year-old had climbed from his car after it had spun while racing alongside Stewart.

Stewart issued a statement saying he looks forward to the process being completed and will continue to cooperate.
