Aldridge Moving Out Of Intensive Care Unit
Jamie Lynn Spears' boyfriend CASEY ALDRIDGE is to be moved out of intensive care after showing signs of progress as he recovers from a car crash on Sunday (26Apr09).
Aldridge, who shares 10-month-old daughter Maddie with Spears, swerved into a ditch while driving down a Louisiana highway and was airlifted to the University of Mississippi Medical Center with head injuries.
Three of the five people riding in the truck - including Aldridge himself - were thrown from the vehicle as it flipped over.
Aldridge suffered mild brain trauma and a fractured skull, while another passenger sustained a broken collarbone, and a third injured his hip.
But the 19-year-old is making a good recovery and doctors are preparing to move him out of the intensive care unit, reports People.com.
A source says, "They said it was borderline whether he needed surgery or not, but they've taken some scans and see no further damage."
Actress Spears has been keeping a bedside vigil since the accident, which occured as Aldridge and his pals travelled home from his cousin's bachelor party.
Aldridge is facing a misdemeanour charge of careless operation of a vehicle - but authorities have ruled out drink or drugs as the cause of the accident.
