Blink-182’s Travis Barker involved in bad collision with school bus

This follows his blood clot recovery...

Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker has been involved in a car accident, colliding with a school bus while his son was in the car.

As reported by TMZ, Barker was driving in Calabasas, California on Friday (July 13) when he collided with a school bus. There were thankfully no children reported on the bus at the time.


Barker’s 14-year old son was reportedly a passenger at the time. The collision triggered the air-bags in the drummer’s Mercedes. His condition is unknown but the report claims that Barker emerged from the vehicle and seemed uninjured, if not “dazed”.

Blink-182‘s Travis Barker has shared a video update on his health as he recovers from blood clots. Check it out below.

The drummer shared a message with the video, which read: “It’s been the longest 4 weeks without playing drums. I played through two shows in Vegas with infection and blood clots before I was able to get a clear diagnosis from a doctor. Here’s an update on my road to recovery.”

The punk band were forced to postpone a number of their shows in their Las Vegas residency after doctors ordered him to “refrain from any activity that may cause further damage or cause the clots to travel.”

Meanwhile, footage from the first show Barker played with Blink-182 recently surfaced online. Posted to Facebook by a fan, the group can be seen playing the track ‘Josie’ in the video, which is dated June 15, 1998.


Currently, Blink-182 are scheduled to perform at Las Vegas’ Pearl Theater from October 26 to November 17.
