‘Under-inflated tyres’ the cause of Travis Barker, DJ AM plane crash

Four died in the accident which happened back in 2008

The plane crash which involved Blink-182‘s Travis Barker and DJ AM was caused by “under-inflated tyres”, reports the Associated Press.

The accident which killed four people back in 2008, left the drummer and DJ – real name Adam Goldstein, seriously injured.

Talking to the National Transportation Safety Board yesterday (April 6), investigators revealed that they estimated the last time the pressure in the plane’s tires had been checked was three weeks before the crash, when after eight days the tyres would have needed changing.


As previously reported, last year Barker settled a lawsuit with Learjet and Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co, who were both involved in the accident.

While Barker and Goldstein were the only survivors in the crash, Goldstein died of a drug overdose a year after the incident.
