Apparently DJ AM was transported to Augusta Burn Center by plane and Travis by ground which suggests that DJ's injuries are more serious than Travis. (see link below-also has photo of plane crashed at end of embankment)

Unhappy

Beth Frits, spokeswoman at the Joseph Still Burn Center, in Augusta, Georgia, said Barker and Goldstein arrived at the hospital early Saturday. She said both men had "extensive burns."

Update #9: Gavin DeGraw was not on the plane either.

(It seems Perez Hilton is the most currently updated site for new info on this crash...)

They are in good hands at the Burn Center in Augusta... hoping for the best for these young men. Travis Barker has children and I know from the Hollywood gossip world, it has been written about how he is real hands on with them and has acted as their primary caretaker because their mother is kind of flighty. I know those babies have to be worried about their daddy, right now.

Oh my goodness. Amazing video report about crash says that an eyewitness said after seeing the fireball come across the highway and crash into an embankment, two passengers exited the plane and were standing in the highway trying to put out the flames on each other. One was said to be stripping off his clothing which was still on fire.

I live in Augusta, and it is definitely one of the best Burn Centers in the southeast. Many people are brought to Augusta when there are life threatening injuries,

Any news yet of who the other passengers were - the pilot - anyone? I am glad there were no children on the plane as sometimes they take them to the concerts with them.

I'm an old fogey so I'm not sure who these people are, though I vaguely remember Adam dating Nicole Richie and I know of Blink-182, but my 15-yo daughter just woke up and is freaking out and praying for them, as am I. This is so very sad. Prayers for them, their families, and the families of those killed.

As Jipc said that's Gavin Rossdale, but Gavin Degraw is mostly known for the use of his song "I Don't Want to Be" as One Tree Hill's theme song.

I can't believe this. I love Travis Barker and like someone said he seems to be a really good father, not only to his child but to his wife's child from a previous marriage/relationship.

Matter of fact they both sound like really nice guys. I'm sure it's hard to be a good guy in the business that they're in.

My prayers for their recovery and for their families.

This is so terrible! And burn injuries are horrible! God bless these 2 men.
I am so sorry for the ones that lost their lives.
My prayers that God brings strength and healing to Travis and Adam.
And prayers for their families and friends and my sympathy and prayer to the families of those that were killed.

This is so devastating. I'm not too familiar with Travis Barker, but I love DJ AM. Prayers to both, those who lost their lives, and their loved one's.

One article I read said they wanted to get back to CA quickly because Baker's (Barker's asistant) wife had gone into labor and he wanted to be present for the birth. So his second child was born on the day the father died. Heartbreaking.

My prayers for everyone touched by this terrible accident.
