Travis Barker settles plane crash lawsuit

Defendants included Learjet, Goodyear, plane's owners

An attorney says Travis Barker has settled his lawsuit against several companies over a fatal plane crash in South Carolina last year.

Lawyer William L. Robinson, who represents some of the companies sued, said the terms of the settlement are confidential.

He said the settlement involves all defendants, including Learjet, Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. and the plane's owners and contractors.

The former Blink-182 drummer was one of two survivors of a Sept. 19, 2008, plane crash that killed two pilots and two of his friends. Another survivor, celebrity disc jockey DJ AM, has since died of an accidental drug overdose.

Barker sued last November claiming the companies improperly operated and maintained the Learjet that overshot the runway and burst into flames.
