8:01 am
sights that he saw in afghanistan, how he plans to use the power of sports to help wounded soldiers rebuild their lives. and butterfly kisses. a boy's hilarious reaction to the monarch who just didn't want to say good-bye. >> it's on my nose. good morning, everybody. we want to get straight to that breaking news overnight. fatal incident involving nascar car driver tony stewart. it happened in upstate new york. spectators horrified as another driver, apparently angry after spinning out, storms on to the track, where stewart hits and kills him. >> we do have team coverage on this developing story, including perspective from espn's lead nascar reporter marty smith. but we begin with abc's linzie janis with more.
8:02 am
>> reporter: the crash taking place at featured race ahead of the nascar race today. kevin ward, a younger driver is run off the track and crashes into the side wall and then exits his car on foot. you can see him there, pointing, that's when nascar's tony stewart hit and killed him. overnight, officials confirming nascar superstar tony stewart is cooperating with an investigation into a deadly crash on an upstate new york racetrack. stewart was running in a race in canandaigua motorsports dirt track, where kevin ward jr. loses control, crashes into the wall. that's when eyewitnesses says, ward angrily exits his car, on foot, pointing. according to investigators, after another racer swerves to avoid ward, tony stewart's car strikes the young driver. ward was rushed to a nearby emergency room. but this morning, sheriff phil
8:03 am
povero confirming he has died from his injuries. >> tony stewart was visibly shaken by this incident and has promised his continuing cooperation in this investigation. >> reporter: stewart has not been charged and so far has not withdrawn from a race in nearby watkins glen. nearly a year after breaking his leg, also on a dirt track. analysts says stewart has a reputation for a short temper. in 2013, a heated argument with joey logano turned into a fist pump. after a race he thought logano blocked only him to let driveot by. in 2011, stewart was detained by australian police. with his helmet in a race in sidney. stewart's representative, our thoughts go out to ward's family and friends. they're still attempting to sort
8:04 am
all of the details. guys, many fans who were there last night, were tweeting they're traumatized by what they saw. >> lot more questions than answers. linzie, thank you. let's get some perspective from the crash from espn's marty smith. good morning, marty. we know that stewart is expected to race in just a few hours at watkins glen, considering the loss of young life, the trauma involved, is this a good idea for him to race? >> i don't think it's my place to answer that question, quite frankly, i think that's up to nascar and local law enforcement who released him because he was so cooperative with them. he's expected to race today. so, if all of those entities feel like he's able to race, then that's fine. now, i will say, he'll have quite a mental challenge ahead of him. as you heard the report there, he's visibly shaken. sheriff povero said, quote, he was extremely upset in giving his statement to police.
8:05 am
so, it will affect him, i'm sure. but he's supposed to race today. >> marty, you have been covering nascar for decades, could nascar intervene before race time and tell stewart, this isn't a good idea to race today? >> they can, but i don't think they will. because they have nothing to do with this. nascar didn't sanction the race that he was in last night. they're two completely separate entities. stewart does this on his own time. he goes back often to race at the grassroots level. that's what he did last night. he actually told me just a couple weeks back in indianapolis, when i spoke with him about this, that some people like to go to the movies. some people like to go to dinner. i like to go race at short tracks. he's vested as well. in my estimation, nascar doesn't have much of a say here. >> marty, nascar is so dangerous in general, how could something like this change the sport?
8:06 am
>> again, this isn't a nascar race, so i think the only thing that could possibly happen is the sanctioning body that sanctions those sprint car races might hand down some sort of edict, that says, if you are frustrated, don't get out of your race car and go on the track surface. but this happens all the time in all forms of racing. stewart has done it himself in the past. if anything would change, i would have to say that might be. >> marty smith, thank you for your time. dan? we'll turn now to another story breaking overnight, a emergency for a jetblue plane, after one of the engines caught fire. passengers orred to evacuate down the emergency slide. the flight was heading from puerto rico to new york's kennedy airport. mara is on the story. >> reporter: dan, good morning.
8:07 am
that flight was scheduled to land here at jfk just after 10:30 last night. but it never even left puerto rico, that's because it was aborted after takeoff when an engine caught fire. in what passengers say sounded like an explosion. new overnight, chaos for passengers aboard jetblue 704 heading to new york. from san juan, puerto rico. >> flight 704 left engine. ready to abort. >> reporter: an engine fire forcing the jet to abort takeoff. 186 passengers and 6 crew members aboard. evacuating the burning aircraft. sliding down inflatable emergency slides. frightening moments for passengers onboard. >> there was a huge bang -- a boom sound on the left side. so, when i looked out the left side of the plane, i saw the smoke coming out of the engine. >> there were chitter-chatter that there was something wrong with the plane.
8:08 am
think had tom to come back. because of engine problems. >> any time you have a situation where passengers would not safe on the airplane, that's the time for an evacuation. certainly if an engine is burning, that qualifies. >> the engine completely destroyed. passengers stranded overnight. in a statement, jetblue said that it's investigating the cause of the fire and, quote, we're working to re-accommodate customers at this time. according to san juan police, at least three injuries were reported. and while investigators say they don't know the exact cause of the fire yet, they are looking into the possibility that it might have been caused by a bird strike. rebooked passengers will continui continue arriving here this morning. paula? >> thank you, mara. now to the latest on the new american military mission in iraq, president obama refusing to put a time limit on the air strikes targeting isis militants. abc's martha raddatz has the very latest from washington. good morning, martha. >> reporter: good morning,
8:09 am
paula. since the president authorized those air strikes, they have been launching them every day relentlessly. overnight, new information emerging about new air strikes against iraqi militants. 11:20 a.m. eastern time, a combination of fighter jets and drones destroy an isis personnel carrier. near sinjar. 20 minutes later, u.s. aircraft strike three more targets. and a follow-up strike destroying another. at 3:00 p.m. eastern, the final target of the day was demolished again. near sinjar. this morning, we're also learning more about the president's struggle with the decision to intervene in iraq, a war he's been opposed to for more than a decade. politically reporting, the president met with his national security advisers three times
8:10 am
in less than 24 hours this week considering every option. this morning, thousands of iraqis remain trapped on a desert mountain for a week, surrounded by isis fighters, u.s. cargo jets delivering more than 3800 gallons of water and 16,000 meals. >> innocent families are faced with a horrible choice, descend a mountain and be slaughtered or stay and slowly die of thirst. >> reporter: 30,000 people have been able to leave the mountain but there are still tens of thousands still up there. >> all right, martha, thank you. martha hosts abc's "this week" later this morning. her guests will include carter ham, diss kuging america's return to combat operations in iraq. dan? >> paula, thank you. let's go to martha's vineyard now where the president is on vacation with his family.
8:11 am
abc news chief white house correspondent jon karl is there, doing the tieless look on vacation. some republicans are criticizing the president for hitting the links, while the crisis in iraq, are these optics troubling for the staffers you're talking to? >> their boss is entirely unconcerned about it. he likes to get out and play golf. it was pretty remarkable. he got here and on the golf course in almost record time. we were on the island for about an hour before he hit the course. but, look, this is a criticism that presidents face over the years, the president who played golf more than any other president was woodrow wilson, of course, and he was president during world war i. >> on the left right now, there are many in the president's own party who's worried that he's dragging the country back into
8:12 am
an unpopular war. how does he reassure these critics? >> well, you know, he agrees with these critics. he didn't want to do this operation. so what he did is he reassures over and over again there will be not any ground troops in iraq. point-blank, that's a promise. but look, dan, this is complicated mission. oddly, we're seeing mission creep beyond just protecting american citizens and dealing with that humanitarian crisis. you're now hearing the president talking about protecting critical infrastructure. this will be a longer operation frankly than even the president wanted. >> thank you, jon karl. lot of other news overnight and for that we turn to ron claiborne. good morning, sir. good morning to you. good morning, everyone.
