Travis Barker and DJ AM Critically Injured in Plane Crash

Posted by - 08:13 AM on 09/20/08
Edit: A statement has been made via Barker's myspace regarding the incident.

According to CNN, Travis Barker (Blink-182, +44) and Adam "DJ AM" Goldstein (formerly of Crazy Town) are both in critical condition with "extensive burns" following a plane crash in South Carolina. Four others (including two crewmembers and Barker's assistant) were killed. Our thoughts here at AP.net are with everyone involved.
