His 14 year old son was also in the car at the time.

It has been reported by TMZ that Blink-182's Travis Barker has been involved in a "bad" car accident in his hometown of Los Angeles, California. 

Reports from witnesses are that the Blink-182 drummer was turning left in his mercedes, when a school bus drove in to the side of his car mid-turn.

According to a statement from law enforcement officials to TMZ, no children were on the school bus at the time and the accident was not the fault of Travis Barker.

There has been no update on the state of Barker or his son, however witnesses report that they were both able to walk away from the crash- albeit a bit "dazed'. The incident was severe enough for the airbags in his car to deploy. 

This is only the most recent incident in a run of bad luck for the Blink-182 drummer, with last month's cancellation of a number of Blink-182's Las Vegas residency performances due to severe blood clots, hospitalisiing the drummer. The Las Vegas dates are set to be rescheduled, with an announcement coming soon. 

We all wish Travis Barker a speedy recovery.
