Rock musician Travis Barker has sued over the South Carolina plane crash that injured him and killed two friends.

The former Blink-182 drummer’s lawsuit names the plane’s owners, Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co., and a maintenance company. He is seeking more than $25,000 (€19,976) in damages.

Still’s mother, Thelma Martin Still, is also suing the companies.

Barker and disc jockey DJ AM were both injured in the crash.
