A South Carolina Leerjet crash has killed four and left former Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker and Adam Michael Goldstein (DJ AM) in critical condition at an area hospital burn unit.
The plane never made it off the ground for takeoff. Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen told reporters that the plane carrying was departing before midnight Friday when air traffic controllers reported seeing sparks. The plane careened off the runway and crashed on a roadway.
The pilot Sarah Lemmon, 31, of Anaheim Hills, CA co-pilot James Bland, 52, of Carlsbad, CA, Chris Baker, 29, of Studio City, CA, and Charles Still, 25, of Los Angeles, CA died in the crash.
Barker and Goldstein were in South Carolina for a concert. Officials said that Gavin DeGraw and Parrey Farrell, who preformed at the same concert, were not on the plane.
An eyewitness told local NBC affiliate WIS-10 that the two survivors could be seen running around, on fire, trying to extinguish themselves.
DJ AM is from Los Angeles and is best known for his engagement to Nicole Ritchie. He performed with Barker recently at the MTV Video Music Awards.
