It's been well over a year since Blink 182's Travis Barker and DJ AM were severely injured in a Learjet crash in South Carolina but now, the National Transportation Safety Board has finally concluded why the accident occurred.

Investigators have deemed the aircraft's under-inflated tires to have been the problem and hope their finding will encourage people to check tire pressure in business jets more frequently. Apparently, during their investigation, they learned that operators of air charters often aren't aware how rapidly the tires of some business jets can lose pressure and aren't checking tire pressure frequently enough.

Though this information doesn't bring back the four lives that were lost due to the tragedy, perhaps now with this information, more lives can be saved from such accidents.
