As details of last night's tragic plane crash unfold, those close to DJ AM, Travis Barker and their loved ones have started to spread the appeal for hope and prayers.

"horrible news [sic]," began a blog post written by Lindsay Lohan today in response to the tragedy, which killed four and left Adam "DJ AM" Goldstein and Barker seriously injured.

"please send your prayers out to adam goldstien [sic] and travis barker—along with the others lost in the plane crash...

"it's so scary to think that life can end so fast...we must all treasure each and every moment—and be thankful for what we have...all my love..xoxo...L"

In her own post, Lohan's gal-pal Samantha Ronson, who spins for the same Hollywood scene that made DJ AM a celebrity, had a similarly shocked reaction to what happened to Barker and her "good friend Adam."

"i don't really know what to say, it's such horrifying news, but i was hoping you guys would please send him your best wishes/prayers because I don't really know what else to do," Ronson wrote.

"also for travis barker, who was on the plane. four other people were on the plane and did not survive, i can't even imagine the pain their families must be in. soooooo sad and i'm so sorry."

Lohan and Ronson, of course, are not the only ones reeling from the accident.

Meanwhile, in an exclusive statement to E! News, Pure Management Group, which operates DJ AM's Hollywood club LAX, extended its condolences to everyone involved.

"Our thoughts and prayers go out to both Adam and Travis," said Michael Greco, Pure's VP of Entertainment.

"The PMG family is deeply saddened by the news of this unfortunate event and we wish Adam and Travis a speedy recovery and send our sincere condolences to the families who lost loved ones."

DJ AM's rep also confirmed reports that the celebrity spinner and Barker are in critical but stable condition and paid its respect to those who lost family members last night.

"Both Travis Barker and Adam Goldstein (DJ AM) are in critical but stable conditon and are being treated at Joseph M. Still Burn Center in Augusta, Georgia after surviving a plane crash late last night in Columbia, South Carolina," the statement read.

"The hospital will issue a statement with an update on their condition at 9:00 am eastern time tomorrow. Due to the nature of the injuries and the evolving course of treatment no further information on their condition is available at this time. The accident claimed the lives of four people on board, two of whom, Chris Baker (Lil Chris) and Charles Stills (Che), were close friends of the injured.

"On behalf of Travis Barker and DJ AM, deepest sympathy is expressed to the loved ones of all who perished in the crash. As the two recuperate and mourn this loss, privacy for them, their families, and friends is requested at this time."
