    Utica, N.Y. (WHAM) -- ESPN reports the wrongful death lawsuit filed by the parents of Kevin Ward Jr. against Tony Stewart was officially dismissed Tuesday.

    The lawsuit stems from the death of Kevin Ward Jr., 20, in 2014. Ward was killed after being hit by Stewart's vehicle during a sprint car race at Canandaigua Motorsports Park.

    Ward's parents filed a wrongful death lawsuit in 2015, claiming the crash was caused by recklessness on Stewart's part.

    According to the report, the judge allowed 30 days for the case to be reopened if the terms of the settlement are not met.
