(Reuters) - There is currently no evidence that NASCAR champion driver Tony Stewart committed a crime when he struck and killed a fellow driver in a weekend race, the Sheriff of Ontario County, New York, said on Monday.

"At this time there are no facts that exist that support any criminal behavior or conduct or any probable cause of a criminal act in this investigation," Sheriff Phil Povero said at a news conference, adding that the investigation into 20-year-old Kevin Ward Jr's death was still ongoing.
