Full Recovery Expected For Travis Barker & DJ AM

September 21st, 2008 // 4 Comments

As promised, here is some updated information we’ve gathered about the plane crash that involved Travis Barker and DJ AM A/K/A Chris Goldstein.

-Four people were killed in the crash, one of whom was Chris Baker AKA Lil’ Chris, Barker’s assistant. Both Travis and DJ AM are expected to make a full recovery. Both men are being treated for second and third degree burns at the Joseph Still Burn Center in Augusta, Ga.

-Flight records uncovered by the FAA reveal that the Learjet that crashed in South Carolina last night carrying both AM and Barker didn’t have any prior records problems. The two-year-old, 11-seat jet had successfully blown from Teterboro to Columbia, SC arriving less than an hour late. The crash took place before the plane could reach flight.

According to a source from the FAA, “Something must have gone wrong on the ground. It appears the plane had no mechanical issues.”

-After the crash, DJ AM was rushed by ambulance to the hospital along with Travis Barker, who suffered severe burns below the waist. However, the DJ did have a chance to call his mother and “was completely terrified and traumatized.”

-Nicole Richie, AM’s ex-fiancée reacts to the news of the crash. The Simple Life star, who turned 28 today, “is in shock.” A friend of Richie’s told Us, “She wishes only the best for Adam and hopes he recovers from this. She’s horribly upset about the people who died.”

-As for Shanna Moakler, Travis Barker’s ex-wife and baby mama, she rushed to be by Barker’s side. Gail Moakler, Shanna’s mother, told People, “We’re totally crushed.”

-In reaction, Lindsay Lohan posted on her MySpace blog: “please send your prayers out to adam goldstien and travis barker- along with the others lost in the plane crash…”

    I believe the man to the right is one of the victims of the crash, please note this.

    I live in Augusta, Georgia and they are in the best burn center in the entire southeast. They are in excellent hands! Dr. Mullins is a miracle worker.

    “susan says:
