Calvin Harris Briefly Hospitalized After Car Crash, Cancels Las Vegas Performance

Calvin Harris was involved in a car crash on Friday night in Sherman Oaks, Calif., on his way to the airport for a Las Vegas performance.

“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,” his team wrote Saturday morning on Facebook.

According to the Los Angeles Times, a Volkswagen Bug crossed the center divider and crashed into a Cadillac SUV carrying Harris around 11 p.m. He suffered a cut to the nose and was rushed to a local hospital and released shortly afterward. TMZ reports that the 16-year-old female driver, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected from the car and later treated for a broken pelvis.

Harris, whose real name is Adam Wiles, left the hospital “against medical advice,” according to TMZ, when a private room wasn’t available. The DJ has since returned to his Beverly Hills home.

The musician was set to perform on Saturday night at the OMNIA Nightclub at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas. He still has shows scheduled at the club on May 27 and June 3.
