DJ Calvin Harris Injured In Studio City Car Crash
DJ Calvin Harris (and Taylor Swift's beau) and one other person were injured in a head-on car crash in Studio City Friday night.KTLA reports the crash occurred on the 3500 block of Laurel Canyon Blvd. around 11 p.m. when a Volkswagen Beetle crossed the center divider.
According to TMZ, the Volkswagen was driven by a 16-year-old girl, and that it was "filled with teenagers." One of the passengers of the Beetle, who was apparently sitting on someone's lap, was ejected from the car, and suffered a broken pelvis. Her condition is not yet known, but both she and the driver were taken to the hospital.
As for Harris, whose real name is Adam Wiles, the L.A. Times reports he "suffered facial cuts above his nose."
TMZ writes that Harris requested a private room at the hospital, but when he was told one wasn't available, he "hopped off the gurney and left," disregarding the advice of doctors.
According to a statement on his Facebook page, Harris was en route to the airport when the crash occurred, and has since cancelled his appearance at the Omnia club in Las Vegas. "As a result he will be unable to perform at Omnia tonight," the statement read. "He has been examined by doctors and told to rest for a few days."
