Travis Barker & DJ AM
On September 19, 2008, Hip-Hop’s favorite rocker Travis Barker and DJ AM told the Grim Reaper go f#ck yourself when a Learjet they were passengers on crashed and burst into a blazing inferno near Columbia, South Carolina. The plane was attempting to depart the airport when it began to spark, eventually swerving off the runway, plowing through a fence and sliding across a road, before coming to a catastrophic halt after hitting an embankment. Barker and DJ AM survived the crash and were both sent to the hospital in critical condition, but recovered. Four other passengers on the plane didn’t survive the crash. DJ AM passed a year later in an apparent drug overdose which some attribute to the crash.
