The accident occurred during a heat, which Steele was observing from behind a dirt berm, the release says. It says a derby car was struck by another car, which went over the berm and hit Steele.

An ambulance crew on standby at the event took Steele to Delta Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The incident is under investigation.
