update from TMZ:
We've learned Casey Aldridge was charged with careless operation of a motor vehicle (a misdemeanor) after this morning's crash -- and no other car was involved.
Casey Aldridge could have been screwed, but got real lucky -- he's going to recover from this morning's car accident.
We just spoke with a close family member/Baptist preacher who says Aldridge did NOT have surgery, but did suffer mild brain trauma.
As we first reported, Casey and 3 other passengers were in a single car accident early this morning in Louisiana.
His F-250 flipped over and Aldridge was airlifted for treatment.
The family member said Aldridge suffered a skull fracture around his hairline and will be kept at the University of Mississippi Medical Center for 2-3 days for observation.
Jamie Lynn Spears is at his bedside.
