Doctors at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, Mississippi, planned to move Casey Aldridge out of their intensive care unit as early as last night or this morning.
"They said it was borderline whether he needed surgery or not," says a hospital source, "but they've taken some scans and see no further damage to repair."
Aldridge, the father of Jamie Lynn Spears' 10-month-old daughter Maddie Briann, was hospitalized with a head injury that he suffered when he had a serious accident on a two-lane road in Louisiana at 1:30 a.m. Sunday.
We would like to correct a few mistakes made in an earlier report of the accident as at the time, it was a bit sketchy.
Instead of running into a barn, the vehicle apparently jumped over a cow in the road. This happened because, instead of driving a truck Casey and his friends were in a small plane, trying to land on the highway in an emergency.
Also, they had been to a bachelor party for a friend and not gone on a fishing trip.
Too, it happened in Louisiana, not Mississippi, but they were taken to a Mississippi hospital. No one knows why, except that old friends of Casey's say he loved to ride in emergency vehicles with the lights flashing and sirens going.
There were five instead of four friends as one had previously hid behind a tree because he had told his girlfriend that he was in bed with the flu.
Finally, we're not sure that this is the same Casey Aldridge that fathered Jamie Lynn Spears' baby.
Other than that, we stand by the previous report.
