Three Ejected from Car in Casey Aldridge Crash

4/26/2009 9:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Louisiana State Troopers tell us three of the five people riding in Casey Aldridge's truck (they previously told us only four were in the truck) were ejected during the crash -- and Casey was one of them.

Cops tell us while Casey was heading north on the 606 in Louisiana early this morning, he swerved off the right side of the road and into a ditch, then over-corrected his turn back onto the pavement, causing the car to flip. During the flip, 3 people -- including Casey -- were ejected from the car.

The two others who were ejected refused medical treatment at the scene -- and as we previously reported, Casey was taken to the Riverside Medical Center in Ferriday, La. due to what cops called "moderate injuries."

As for whether alcohol was a factor, cops tell us they didn't speak to Casey for nearly four hours after the crash -- due to his hospitalization -- and when they did, they found no reason to suspect he had been drinking.

Just to put this in perspective, cops told us it's 4x more likely for people to die when they're ejected from a car during a crash -- and all 3 who were ejected survived.

Casey was charged with careless operation of a motor vehicle -- a misdemeanor -- and is currently recovering from his injuries at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, Miss.

They all need to be cited for NO SEAT BELTS! And if anyone ever dies in rollovers like this, the driver AND car owner need to be arrested for no seat belts for passengers.

And all over the country, people were injured and killed today in car accidents, most of them just as famous as this dude... who really cares about news of some guy who slept with Britney Spears a few years ago....

Guess all these morons were just too cool to wear seatbelts in front of their friends.

Christ, I read the headline quickly, I guess, and thought Casey AFFLECK had been thrown from a car. I was pretty anxious for a minute, Casey Affleck rules. Then I saw I had misread the name. Who is this Casey? I've never even heard the name before...

Oh, ok, guess I could have checked the other comments first. The Spears' sister's baby daddy. Well, you never want to see anyone harmed like that, so, you know, this is too bad. But, Amen, Casey Affleck lives on!

dadun-- clearly someone in LA, CA wrote this article. "The 606"-- that has always bugged me. They just like to hear themselves talk more I guess. Just say 606 already.

I guess everyone at TMZ is bored today as well if all they have to write about is this idiot. Why not just skip him and wait until something interesting and fun happens with someone with class and morals.

Gotta love famous people    

Ya gotta love famous people!!! It is funny that the cops didnt talk to this joker for 4 hours after the accident, then decided that they didnt see any reason there was alcohol involved???lets see, four kids in a roll over accident, no seatbelts, i am guessing it was night time....I suppose the doctors didnt draw blood either...Only in America.....If it would have been non famous kids, cops would have been drilling the hell out of them....Gotta love it.
