    Casey Aldridge, Jamie Lynn Spears' boyfriend and baby daddy, is in stable condition after the truck he was driving crashed early Sunday morning, sources tell E! News.

    The 19-year-old Aldridge was driving his Ford F-250 truck in rural Tensas Parish, La. around 1:20 a.m. with four male friends when he lost control of his vehicle. Aldridge's truck flipped over at least once after he drifted off the road and overcorrected.

    Aldridge received a careless operation traffic citation, which Louisiana State Trooper Mark Dennis defined as "operating a motor vehicle and endangering the life, limb and property of any person, including oneself."

    What does this mean for Aldridge? "With any traffic citation it means appearing in front of a judge to explain what happened or it may be payable out of court."

    Dennis also confirmed details of the crash: "There were four occupants in addition to the driver in the truck, all male, and three of the five total people were ejected from the vehicle in the crash. One of those was indeed Casey Aldridge."

    Dennis said that Aldridge was transported from the scene of the accident to Riverland Medical Facility in Ferriday, La., prior to troopers arriving to investigate and was said to have "moderate injuries." Meanwhile, a representative at Riverland confirmed that Aldridge was treated earlier at their facility, but that "he is not here now."

    According to reports, Aldridge cracked his skull. "The other passengers reported minor injuries," said Dennis. "It's my understanding that none of them required treatment at the scene and refused to be taken to a medical facility."

    Dennis said that while he has been asked numerous times about the possibility of Aldridge driving under the influence, "The trooper investigating the scene had no probable cause to request chemical tests so at this time there's no reason to suspect alcohol or drug use on the part of the driver."

    Spears, 18, has been spotted at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, where Aldridge has presumably been transferred.

    The couple, who are engaged to be married but haven't set a date, have a 10-month-old daughter, Maddie.
