Travis Barker, DJ AM In Critical Condition After Fatal Plane Crash


At 11:53PM last night a private Learjet carrying Travis Barker and DJ AM crashed while taking off in Columbia, South Carolina. The plane, which was supposed to travel to Van Nuys, California, overran the runway, broke through a fence, and crossed a highway before colliding with a shoulder alongside the road. A driver who witnessed the crash said the plane looked like a fireball as it crossed the highway. Barker and DJ AM were admitted to the Joseph Still Burn Center in Augusta, Georgia in critical condition, while four other people on board were killed including pilot Sarah Lemmon, 31, co-pilot James Bland, 52, Chris Baker, 29, and Charles Still, 25.
