Tragic news coming out of South Carolina. Travis Barker and DJ AM, whose real name is Adam Goldstein, were critically injured in a private plane crash, and the four other people onboard were killed. The plane crashed around midnight on Friday, September 19 after taking off from an airport in Columbia, South Carolina.
Both Travis Barker and DJ AM are reported to be in critical condition at a burn center in Augusta, Georgia. According to a MSNBC report, a man who discovered the wreckage described encountering two men who were on fire and trying to put each other out. One of the men was also reportedly trying to strip off his clothes that were burning.
While Travis Barker is best known as the former Blink 182 drummer, he also starred in his own reality TV series on MTV. The series was called Meet The Barkers and followed the lives of Travis and former Miss USA Shanna Moakler, who was his wife at the time.
While DJ AM is best known as a popular club disc jockey, he also has a connection to the world of reality TV. DJ AM was at one time engaged to The Simple Life reality TV star Nicole Richie.
