Seven specatators were injured on Sunday after debris from Carl Edwards’ car flew into the grandstands after it went airborne and crashed into the safety fence during the final lap Sunday at the Talladega Superspeedway.

Officials said seven fans sustained non-life-threatening injuries, and an eighth fan seated in the same section of the grandstand had an undisclosed medical issue.

Dr. Bobby Lewis, Talladega’s onsite physician, said two people in the crowd were airlifted from the track to avoid the heavy traffic. One woman had a possible broken jaw.
