Investigators say they've recovered the cockpit voice recorder from a fiery South Carolina jet crash that killed four and critically injured former Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker and celebrity DJ AM.

National Transportation Safety Board member Debbie Hersman said Saturday that the recorder has yet to be analyzed. She says authorities investigating the crash at Columbia Metropolitan Airport have yet to rule anything out for causing the crash, but the plane took off in clear weather.

The Learjet overshot the runway, and hurtled across a five-lane road shortly before midnight Friday.

Barker and DJ AM, whose real name is Admsam Goldstein, were in critical but stable condition at a burn center in Georgia. The pilot, co-pilot and two passengers died.

The airport remains closed, reported Associated Press.
