Travis Barker & DJ AM Critically Injured In Plane Crash

Travis Barker and DJ AM(Adam Goldstein) were critically injured in a deadly plane crash that claimed the lives of four people in Columbia, SC on Friday. Barker and AM are being treated for serious burns but in stable condition. Those who lost their lives were pilot Sarah Lemmon, 31, of Anaheim, Calif.; her copilot, James Bland, 52, of Carlsbad, Calif.; Barker's assistant, Chris "Little Chris" Baker, 29, of Studio City, Calif. and Charles Still, 25, of Los Angeles, Calif.

Barker and AM were in Columbia for a free T Mobile concert. This is a very tragic event that actually happened right in my hometown. I got word of this news early part of this morning, when details weren't very specific. I was hoping more survived but unfortunately not. The concert went very well with a huge turn out, but just a very tragic ending. There will be a candlelight vigil for the victims in Columbia at 6pm tonight.
