Jamie Lynn Spears' Beau Injured in Car Wreck
Casey Aldridge, baby daddy of Jamie Lynn Spears' 10-month-old daughter Maddie, was injured in a car accident early Sunday morning. While there's been no confirmation of his injury, some reports say Casey suffered a hairline skull fracture. Neither Jamie Lynn nor their daughter was involved in the crash.
According to People magazine, Jamie Lynn (pictured with Casey in October 2008) and the rest of Aldridge's family have been by his side at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, where the 19-year-old is expected to make a full recovery. "The doctors are pretty positive he's going to be okay," an inside source dished to the mag. "He should recover fully. Of course, you never know, but they're not expecting him to get any worse."
Aldridge is reportedly alert, resting, and talking to friends and family. Doctors plan to keep Aldridge in the intensive care unit for three days "to keep a close check on him," the source adds. "They are planning no surgery unless something happens."
Casey was driving a 2008 Ford F-250 truck when he got into an accident at 1:30 AM near Lake Bruin in Louisiana, where he is said to have attended a bachelor party for his cousin. Aldridge was taken by ambulance to Riverland Medical Center. Due to the wreck, Casey has been charged with careless operation of a vehicle, which is a misdemeanor.
A rep for the Spears family has yet to comment on the incident.
