Travis Barker Critically Injured In Plane Crash

Travis Barker, father of two young children (Alabama & Landon) and DJ AM were among six people aboard a Learjet that crashed upon takeoff from a Columbia, South Carolina, airport after midnight Friday. The four others onboard were killed.

According to the Federal Aviation Administration, the plane was set to leave the airport, when air traffic controllers saw sparks coming from the plane, which went off the runway, smashed through a fence, crossed a nearby road, slammed into an embankment and caught on fire. Barker had performed the night before with former Jane’s Addiction singer Perry Farrell, Gavin DeGraw and DJ AM.

Barker is in critical condition, and was transported to the Augusta Georgia Burn Center in Augusta, Georgia. DJ AM, ex fiance of Nicole Richie, was also injured in the crash and is also listed in critical condition.

    My thoughts are with the families of those who died. I hope both Mr. Barker and DJ AM come out of this alright, my thoughts and prayers are also with them and their familes.
