Jet carrying Blink-182’s Travis Barker may have suffered tyre blowout

Crew made attempts to abort take-off, say officials

Experts studying the jet crash that left former Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker and DJ Adam Goldstein seriously injured and killed four others have said it may have been caused by a tyre blowout.

A safety official investigating the crash said that a cockpit voice recording indicated that the crew had tried unsuccessfully to abort take-off, reports BBC News.

The Learjet crashed into a nearby road shortly after leaving the runway in Columbia, South Carolina, on Friday night (September 19).

Both Barker and Goldstein remain in hospital, having suffered second and third-degree burns from the crash.
