4 Dead, 2 Injured - Travis Barker & DJ A.M. Hurt But Survive Fatal Plane Crash

| Filed under: DJ A.M.Travis Barker


This is heartbreaking! So tragic.

Travis Barker was involved in a fatal private plane crash in Columbia, South Carolina early on Saturday morning, killing four and injuring two.

The former Blink 182 drummer is said to be one of the two injured.

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen says the plane carrying six people was departing shortly before midnight Friday when air traffic controllers reporting seeing sparks.

She says the plane went off the runway and crashed on a nearby road.

Bergen says the Lear 60 was headed to Van Nuys, Calif.

She didn't have the names of those killed and didn't know the conditions of the two people injured.

Update: Nooooo!!!!!!!!

We are hearing that D.J. A.M. was also on the plane at the time of the crash.

Please pray to God that he is okay!!!!

Update #2: Travis is in "critical" condition.

He's been transfered to the Agusta, Georgia Burn Center. We pray that his injuries are not severe.

Update #3: D.J. A.M. is alive!!!!!

It's a miracle!!!!

We're hearing he is in critical condition as well.

God was with Travis and A.M.!

Of the six people involved in the fatal plane crash, they were the only two that survived!

So incredibly sad about those lost.

Update #4: An airport spokesperson says the plane - a small lear jet - crashed just after take off a little before midnight Friday. It appears the plane was attempting to take off, ran off the runway, through a fence, and hit an embankment along Highway 302.

The plane then caught fire.

Our heart goes out to the family and friends of those who passed. Their names have yet to be released.

Update #5: Gavin DeGraw and Perry Farrell were also at the concert Travis and A.M. were performing at. It is unknown at this time if either of theme were also on the plane.

Update #6: Federal officials say two crew members and two passengers were killed. They are three males and one female.

Details are still unknown as to what caused the crash.

Update #7: Click here to see pictures and video of the horrific crash.

So sad.

Update #8: We have just learned that Perry Farrell was not on the plane.

Update #9: Gavin DeGraw was not on the plane either.

Update #10: We are hearing that one of those deceased is Travis' assistant, Chris.


Our condolences to everyone!

    For the people freaking out about the misspelling of 'plane' ..SHUT UP! There are far more important things about this post then a fucking misspelling. I'm sure this post was made in a hasty/panicked way.

  36. 36

    Thank GOD DJ AM is alive.

    I hope he's okay! Prayers go out to you and your family Travis! Please get well!

  50. eine says – reply to this


    hey, Perez. Have some respect for the other four people killed. Four people died and you end your post with "Thank you, God!" Wow. You suck.

  51. 51

    My prayers go ut to the families that have lost their loved ones.
    God Bless them all in this tragic time.

  52. 52

    Shana Moakler was also on the Plane but was killed instantly.R.I.P Shana Moakler…our prayers are with the families.

  53. 53

    All I can say is thank god no one famous was killed.

    This could have turned out much worse.

  54. 54


    This is sooooo disturbing! All my prayers are going to the families that are involved in this.

    I hope the survivors will be more than okay.

    This is so sad…

  55. 55

    I live in Charleston, SC and heard about it very early this morning…So sad! Guess all we can do is send prayers up for them.

  56. 56

    aw ):

  57. 57

    Wow. You're giving off the impression that just because their not famous, it's okay that their dead.

  58. 58

    msn news stated dj am was also admitted to burn unit in critical condition

  59. 59

    Re: minkypink – Of course it matters. Everything matters. What my great-grandmama ate on the morning of April 14th, 1883 matters. Don't you realize that?

  60. 60

    my heart goes out to the families of those who died and to those injuried x

  61. 61

    DJ AM is also critical in the burn unit according to MSNBC

  62. Lene says – reply to this


    Re: yup

    I was thinking the same thing.
    : (

  63. 63

    I hope Travis survives!

    The world can't stand to lose another sideways hat wearing doofus.

  64. 64

    You people make me sick!
    Just because they are celebrities does not mean that they have more human rights than the other people on that plane!
    You didn't even fucking say R.I.P to those WHO LOST THEIR GOD DAMN LIVES. You are just happy that two fucking celebrities are OK. Just because you fucking know them, doesn't mean you have to be a fucking self-centered bitch like you always are. A human life is a human life, no matter what status their fucking wealth is. Fucking pigs. This just lost all my respect for you Perez, that is just horrible.

  65. 65

    :( I

  66. 66

    I heard gavin degraw was on that plane too

  67. 67

    Gavin Degraw and Perry Farrell (Jane's Addiction) played the event in Columbia last night too….it was a Tmobile block party thing. Praying they weren't on the same plane.

  68. 68

    wow, wow, wow. That's something to wake up to. My thoughts to the families involved.

  69. 69

    People always b*tch and moan about how awful Perez is. And then when these same people hear about a tragic event, their first instinct is to correct a grammatical error?? Wow idiots!! People died!

  70. 70


  71. 71

    Re: TOUCANSAM – You're a liar. Show proof. I doubt that you could find that out before Perez. You're just trying to stir everyone up.

  72. 72

    According to cnn.com, Perry Farrell, the former Jane's Addiction singer, was also on the plane.

  73. 73

    I wonder why it is that when someone is almost killed and instead they survive,why is it someone always says thank GOD?When at any other time no one even thinks of GOD or the BIBLE,GODS WORD,or is even thankful for most of the little things HE does for us all the time.Only at a time of tragedy does any one think of GOD.Hum,appreciate what you have or it can be taken away from you by HIM,even your own life.

  74. 74

    awful! god bless

  75. 75

    omg so sad.

  76. 76

    i just read that gavin degraw and perry farrell performed w/ travis and dj am that night, but still no confirmation on whether they were on the plane or not… so tragic.

  77. Lene says – reply to this


    Gavind Degraw, Shanna Moakler, and Ferrell MIGHT have been traveling with them.
    gosh, this sucks.
    rip to those who died! POOR FAMILIES!

  78. 78

    According to cnn.com, Perry Farrell, the former Jane's Addiction lead singer, was also on the plane.

  79. 79

    i really hope their both okay.
    their both in my prayers.

  80. 80

    why the fuck would you say thank you, god? 4 other people died… atleast you got a clue and deleted that stupid ass comment

  81. 81

    thank god there ok

  82. Lene says – reply to this



    It's a shame you would write such a vile thing. She has children, she has a family. She has fans. You are mean.

  83. 83

    In case you people can't read any other websites but this one for your news. Those who are "thankfull' that none of the dead were famous should probaly think again, he had just performed with Perry Farrell & Gavin Degraw along with DJ AM, so there's a chance that *gasp* the 2 dead passengers are indeed "famous people."
    Reguardless, all involved families should be in our prayers

  84. 84

    OMG. Just think. If Mischa Barton and Nicole Ritchie were still dating these guys, they might have been on the plane, too. I think every musician and performer has to be sick about this. It could happen to them!!!

  85. 85

    Re: KayLove1224 – fuck you bitch read the other fucking news and see.Shana is dead and Barker expired at the hospital from his injuries.

  86. 86

    Re: Tasha927I would answer you if you could spell.

  87. 87

    I have a bad bad feeling Farrel and DeGraw were amongst the dead; by now it would be "clear" they were alive, by virtue of confirmation. I think they're just waiting to notify family. :(

  88. 88

    Update 6: LC was also on the plane - her beefcurtains shielded her from harm and she is back on set to film her next episode of the Hills - Audrina unfortunatley didn't make it.

    Update 7: Authorities are questioning LC - they suspect she greased the flaps before takeoff.

  89. 89

    Re: TOUCANSAM – either way….could you please chill out…………seriously…..some respect

    Re: manders0923

    You are so right. :)

  91. 91

    don't know them,don't care about them

  92. 92

    Re: buddyone – im just sayin that there lucky to be alive, insted of bitchin on other peopels comments why dont you just get over your self and think about the other peopel that was on the plane who didnt survive

  93. 93

    Re: TOUCANSAM – Like I said. Until I see PROOF that they are dead, you are a liar. I've checked MULTIPLE sources, and found nothing. Seems like you're just trying to stir things up.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to their families, though. That has to be hard.

  94. 94

    THIS IS SO FREAKING WEIRD. ok so anyway, i live in augusta georgia and my dad's a doctor. he's at work right now, so i called him up to see if he checked in with the hospital patients today. he did…AND HE SAW THESE TWO. he said they're okay. travis was up but am was out.

  95. 95

    God did make man in his image & before the fall we were perfectly in communion with Him daily…but once sin entered, we were separated from God & slaves to our sinful nature. Homosexuality, if not addressed spiritually (b/c yes, it is a demonic spirit) is the result of a depraved state of indifference towards the sin of it or an active rejecting what the word of God says about it (ie: hardening one's heart towards the truth of God and His ways) and is ultimately the road to death. Proverbs 14:12: There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. And to those who say that they were 'born' gay - I don't doubt that there are MULTITUDES of people born into the demonic oppression of the ancestors - actually, I know that to be true…continued…

  96. 96

    R.I.P. to those who passed

  97. 97

    Exodus 34:7: Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children's children, unto the third and to the fourth generation….God is a forgiving God, but He's not to be tested and he makes it clear that we reap what we sow - Galatians 6:7-8: Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting…continuesd…again…

  98. 98

    And to those who say being gay is a trait or a gene or something - Ephesians 6:12: For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places….Look, the devil is a liar - he's the prince of all lies, the author of confusion, the ruler of the kingdom of the air. God LOVES everyone He creates and He desires to walk in fellowship with each person daily - intimate, personal fellowship - more close of a relationship than you could ever have with a person b/c His love is PERFECT and His plans for the lives of those who surrender their lives to Him are GOOD PLANS - better than ANYTHING the world, the devil or other people could EVER offer you. You should try it and see. So many people slam Christians, but really, without sincerely seeking to know IF there is a God &, if so, WHO He is & WHAT & WHY He created you - individually - pointing the finger at people who profess Christ and calling them crazy & ignorant & weak is nothing more than an unexplored opinion. And ultimately, you're selling yourself short - AND, I always say to people (b/c if you think about this, it's the truth) WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO LOSE? To spend time alone, asking in your heart for God to reveal Himself to you? You shouldn't be 'convinced' by a PERSON that God is real and that He loves you - if you ask Him, He will show you.
    :-) Just a thought.

    Below are a few lines from Obama's books, IN HIS WORDS!
    From Dreams of My Father: 'I ceased to advertise my mother's race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites.' / 'I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother's race.' / 'There was something about him that made me wary, a little too sure of himself, maybe. And white.' / 'It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names.' / 'I never emulate white men and brown men whose fates didn't speak to my own. It was into my father's image, the black man, son of Africa , that I'd packed all the attributes I sought in myself, the attributes of Martin and Malcolm, DuBois and Mandela.'
    ************'I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.'**************
    Hmmmm….a Muslim, a Bigot & a Racist…NO THANKS! McCain / Palin 2008!
