Calvin Harris was involved in a car accident on Friday night.
A message posted on his official Facebook page read: ‘Adam's transport was involved in a collision this evening on the way to the airport. As a result he will be unable to perform at Omnia tonight. He has been examined by doctors and told to rest for a few days.’
TMZ reports that Harris was a passenger in a Cadillac SUV which was struck by a VW Bug convertible driven by a 16-year-old girl, after it crossed the center line and crashed into his vehicle. The VW bug was said to be filled with teenage passengers.
The gossip site adds that the accident was so violent that one of the passengers who was sitting on her boyfriend's lap was ejected. Harris is said to have suffered a laceration on his face and was taken by paramedics to an L.A. hospital.
But according to TMZ, Harris wanted a private room in the hospital, and when one wasn't available the DJ left "against medical advice.” The driver and her passenger who was ejected from the vehicle were also said to be taken hospital, with the passenger suffering a broken pelvis.
