The grand jury in the Tony Stewart case declined to charge the racing star with criminal charges in the death of driver Kevin Ward Jr., according to multiple outlets. 

Ward died after being struck by Stewart's car in a race in New York on Aug. 9. 

The prosecution in the case said Ward was under the influence of marijuana the night he was killed, according to The Associated Press.
