LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Jamie Lynn Spears’ boyfriend, Casey Aldridge, was back on his feet less than two weeks after a car accident landed him in the ICU.
According to People, Casey served as best man at his cousin’s wedding this weekend in Mississippi.
“He had the weakness of having been in bed and still trying to get his feet under him, but he made it,” a source close to the family told the mag. “It was outside, it was hot, but he did okay. It’s just going to take him a few weeks to get better.”
The wedding reportedly took place on Saturday at Luckett Lodge in Brandon, MS, where Jamie Lynn was one of the approximately 50 guests in attendance.
One source noted that Casey was not his usual self.
“He was not very animated,” the source said. “He is usually quite lively, but he seemed lethargic.”
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Aldridge was ejected from his 6,000-pound truck around 1:30 AM on April 26, after the vehicle flipped over. Two passengers in the car were also thrown from the vehicle, while two others remained inside the truck as it flipped.
The accident occurred 98 miles away from the hospital on Highway 606 at Lake Bruin in Louisiana.
Skid marks on the road and a dead armadillo appeared to be the only evidence of the crash. The teen was ticketed with “careless operation of a motor vehicle,” which is a traffic misdemeanor.
