Travis Barker, ex-Blink-182 drummer and former star of the MTV Reality series Meet The Barkers, was critically injured in a plane crash early this morning in South Carolina. The Lear 60 jet was en route to Van Nuys when air traffic controllers saw sparks. The plane didn't make it off the ground and crashed on a nearby road.
Four of the six passengers on the plane were killed and Barker was airlifted to the burn unit in a hospital in Georgia. Early reports are also saying DJ AM (best known for being Nicole Richie's former fiance) was also on the plane and may be the other survivor. At this time, that rumor can't be substantiated.
A tragic way to kick off the day. Let's think good thoughts for the families of the dead and cross our fingers for the survivors.
