Calvin Harris Cancels Second Concert Following L.A. Car Crash

comments
Calvin Harris cancelled a second live appearance last night as he continues to recovers from injuries sustained in a car crash.

As we reported yesterday, the DJ-producer whose real name is Adam Wiles was taken to hospital on Friday after being involved in a car crash while travelling from Los Angeles to Las Vegas, where he was due to perform at the Omnia nightclub.

Giving fans an update on Harris's condition last night, his representative said: "Adam was a passenger in a vehicle that was struck in a serious collision last night in Los Angeles. He was examined by doctors and sustained a number of injuries."
"He has since been checked out of hospital and is now recovering," his representative continued. "We wish all the other passengers involved in the incident a fast recovery. As a result he was not able to perform in Las Vegas at his Omnia residency and will be unable to perform tonight [Saturday] at Hangout Festival in Gulf Shores, Alabama."

Meanwhile, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) has also given a statement to the press, saying: "A vehicle crossed the centre line and collided with an SUV which Harris was a passenger in. He was transported to a local hospital for a cut to his nose.

"In the other vehicle a juvenile was ejected from the vehicle for not wearing a seatbelt and suffered a broken pelvis. All the passengers in the car were juveniles."

According to TMZ , the girl driving the car which collided with Harris's SUV was just 16 years old. However, this has yet to be confirmed by the LAPD.

Harris, who has been dating Taylor Swift since March 2015, recently released "This Is What You Came For", a collaboration with Rihanna.

NEXT POST© Getty ImagesCalvin Harris.Superstar DJ Calvin Harris has pulled out of a second gig following a “serious” car crash in Los Angeles.

The Scottish producer was taken to hospital with a cut to his nose after the collision at around 11pm local time on Friday.

Harris was a passenger in a Cadillac when the vehicle collided with a Volkswagen Beetle in Coldwater Canyon, near Beverley Hills, a Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) spokeswoman said.

She said: “A vehicle crossed the centre line and collided with an SUV which Harris was a passenger in.

“He was transported to a local hospital for a cut to his nose.

“In the other vehicle a juvenile was ejected from the vehicle for not wearing a seatbelt and suffered a broken pelvis. All the passengers in the car were juveniles.”

The driver was reportedly a 16-year-old girl, according to celebrity news website TMZ.com.

The Feel So Close singer, who is dating Taylor Swift, was forced to pull out of a performance at the Omnia nightclub in Las Vegas as doctors recommended he take a few days off to recover.

And the 32-year-old, whose real name is Adam Richard Wiles, will also miss a headline slot at the Hangout Festival in Alabama on Saturday night.

A spokeswoman for the DJ said last night: “Adam was a passenger in a vehicle that was struck in a serious collision last night in Los Angeles. He was examined by doctors and sustained a number of injuries.

“He has since been checked out of hospital and is now recovering. We wish all the other passengers involved in the incident a fast recovery.

“As a result he was not able to perform in Las Vegas at his Omnia residency and will be unable to perform tonight at Hangout Festival in Gulf Shores, Alabama.”
