As first reported by TMZ, Calvin Harris was involved in a "violent" car crash in Los Angeles Friday evening. The Scottish DJ was a passenger in an SUV en route to the airport where he was scheduled to take a flight to Las Vegas for a club gig — when his vehicle was struck by a Volkswagen Bug convertible that crossed the center line. Harris suffered "a laceration on his face that was bad enough to require immediate attention" and was taken by paramedics to a local L.A. hospital, where he quickly left "against medical advice" after a private room was unavailable. The driver and a passenger of the second car were also hospitalized; the latter was ejected from the car when the crash occurred. "[Harris's] transport was involved in a collision this evening on the way to the airport," reads a statement on his Facebook page. "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."
