Tuesday's statement from Ontario County (New York) Sheriff Philip Povero:
The investigation into the death of Kevin Ward Jr. of Lewis County is ongoing and is expected to continue for at least another two weeks. Investigators continue to seek witnesses, gather evidence and develop the race track crash reconstruction.
However, it would be inappropriate to discuss details or findings of the investigation with the media at this time. I would like to thank everyone for their cooperation as the Ontario County Office of Sheriff continues this investigation and for having patience as we conduct a thorough review of all the relevant facts involving this tragic crash.
When the investigation is completed, we will meet with members of the Ontario County District Attorney's Office and discuss with them all aspects of the investigation into the crash that occurred on August 9, 2014, at the Canandaigua Speedway.
At that time, more information relating to any determinations that have been made may be released.
In closing, on behalf of the Ontario County Office of Sheriff, we thank all of you for your patience and our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the family of Kevin Ward Jr.
