dj am and travis barker involved in plane crash.


DJ AM and former Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker were critically injured after a Learjet crashed while taking off from Columbia Metropolitan in Columbia, SC. Four people—two passengers and two crew members—were killed in the crash.

Both were departing after performing at the T-Mobile Boulevard event in Five Points earlier in the day. Barker had performed Friday night at an event alongside Perry Farrell, the former Jane’s Addiction singer, as well as Gavin DeGraw and DJ AM.

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said the plane carrying six people was departing shortly before midnight Friday from Columbia when air traffic controllers reporting seeing sparks. She said the plane went off the runway and crashed on a nearby road.

Hospital spokeswoman Beth Frits says Barker and DJ AM, whose real name is Adam Goldstein, were at a burn center in Augusta, GA.

TMZ filed the following report: TMZ has learned Travis Barker has been burned from the waist down, but he is expected to survive the plane crash. DJ AM’s face was severely burned and is being tended to right now.

please pray for both of them. i personally know Adam, this is an absolute shock to me. they are the only 2 that survived and are both in critical condition. my heart goes out to those that lost their lives, the pilot, copilot, travis' bodyguard/friend and also travis's assistant.

peace & love.
