COLUMBIA, S.C. - A Learjet has crashed while departing from a South Carolina airport, killing four people and injuring two others including a former member of rock band Blink 182.

NBC News reported that Travis Barker, an ex-drummer with the band who starred in MTV reality show "Meet the Barkers", was among those hurt in the incident.

Barker had performed Friday night at an event alongside Perry Farrell, the former Jane's Addiction singer, as well as Gavin DeGraw and DJ AM. It was not immediately clear whether any of those performers were traveling with Barker.

Just saw it on MSNBC... That sucks, I hope he survives. I'm shocked to hear.  Didn't someone make a phony post a few months ago saying TB died in an airplane crash?

Per news reports on MSNBC/MSNBC.com.

The accident happened just around midnight. The a/c was taking off, it apparently had some kind of problem, veered of to one side, broke through a perimeter fence, crossed a service road and into an embankment. It then caught on fire, gutting most of the a/c.

4 were killed, 2 pax including a well known DJ and a former member of Blink-182 were severely burned. Other pax were not named at this time probably until family members are notified. There had been a major music concert in the Columbia area last night and it is believed those on the a/c were returning home to southern California after preforming at it.

MSNBC has shown live video of the accident site and the a/c. Most of the a/c, especially the upper half is gone due apparently to fire.

Columbia Metro Airport is closed to all traffic until further notice and NTSB investigators are on the way.
