' 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.
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.
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 occurred as Aldridge and his pals traveled home from his cousin's bachelor party.
Aldridge is facing a misdemeanor charge of careless operation of a vehicle - but authorities have ruled out alcohol or drugs as the cause of the accident.
