Blink-182's Travis Barker has been seriously injured in a plane crash in South Carolina today (September 20).

The drummer and DJ Adam Goldstein are the only two survivors out of the six reportedly on board.

According to BBC News, Barker is currently being treated for burns after the accident.

The Learjet was attempting to take off, before it swerved off the runway and crashed on a road, according to a Federal Aviation Administration spokesperson.

Since Blink-182 announced their hiatus in 2005, Barker has created a number of high-profile remixes for artists including Flo Rida and Soulja Boy, and drummed for all the performers at the MTV Video Music Awards on September 7 this year.
