Travis Barker and DJ AM are the only two people out of six who have survived a Learjet crash in Columbia, South Carolina. The plane departed shortly before midnight last night when the plane crashed through a fence at the end of the runway and crashed into a road just outside the airport.
Two crew members and two passengers were killed; the identity of the other two passengers is still unknown.
Travis, former drummer for Blink-182 and former MTV reality show star, and DJ AM (Adam Goldstein), a popular LA DJ and ex-fiance of Nicole Richie, are at the August Burn Center and both are in critical condition. Both were in town for a concert.
An eye witness, according to a local WIS10 report, says he approached the jet and two men were running around, trying to extinguish themselves. They said there were four others in the plane but all could see immediately that there was nothing they could do.
A press conference is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. ET. We'll have those details.
Our condolences to the families of the victims and our thoughts are with Travis and Adam.
