BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - A teenager who was injured during Talladega's NASCAR race has been released from the hospital.

A UAB Hospital spokeswoman said that Lauderdale County High School senior Blake Bobbitt was discharged on Wednesday. Bobbitt had reconstructive surgery to repair a broken jaw.

She was one of seven fans injured by flying debris at Sunday's Aaron's 499 race when Carl Edwards' car sailed into the safety fence on the final lap.

Bobbitt's mother said she had her lower jaw reconstructed. Blake was in the second row of the grandstands with her father when the wreck occurred.

She is from Rogersville in the northwest corner of Alabama.
