Posted on: September 20, 2008

Travis Barker, Former Blink 182 drummer, and Adam Goldstein, aka DJ AM and Nichole Richie’s Ex , were injured in a plane crash that killed four) and critically injured two.

Both Travis and DJ AM were in critical condition as of Saturday morning and transported to a burn center in Augusta, Georgia.

They were traveling in a Learjet 60 when it crashed during takeoff from South Carolina’s Columbia Metropolitan Airport, just before midnight on Friday. The plane was headed for Van Nuys, CA.

Barker was transported by ground to the burn facility from the site of the crash but DJ AM was airlifted.

The deceased have been identified as pilot Sarah Lemmon, 31, of Anaheim Hills, CA co-pilot James Bland, 52, of Carlsbad, CA, Chris Baker, 29, of Studio City, CA, and Charles Still, 25 of Los Angeles, CA.

Chris was Travis’s assistant.

The plane crash is still under investigation, however, during a press conference late Saturday morning a spokeswoman for the National Transportation Safety Board revealed that the plane overran the airstrip and proceeded to run into a number of the airport’s lights and antennas.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to their families.
