Travis and DJAM Tragic Learjet Accident
Our thoughts and get well wishes go out to Travis Barker and DJ AM (Adam Goldstein) and all the families involved following the tragic South Carolina plane crash that killed Barkers friends, assistant Chris Baker and security guard Charles Still as well as the pilot Sarah Lemmon and co pilot James Bland of the Learjet. Barker and Goldstein are said to have saved their own lives by jumping out of the fiery wreckage and both have severe burns and are in “critical but stable” condition at a burn center in Augusta, Ga. The duo were in Columbia, SC and had performed together under the name TRV$DJ-AM at a T-Mobile free concert on Friday night. Officials said the plane carrying six people was departing shortly before midnight when air traffic controllers reported seeing sparks. The plane hurtled off the end of a runway and crashed on an embankment across SC interstate 302, a five lane highway and was engulfed in flames, said Debbie Hersman, a member of the NTSB.
