Superstar DJ Calvin Harris was taken to hospital after the car he was travelling in crashed.

The Scottish producer was a passenger in a Cadillac on his way to the airport in Los Angeles when the vehicle collided with a Volkswagen Beetle at around 11pm local time on Friday, celebrity news website said.

The Feel So Close singer, whose real name is Adam Richard Wiles, had to pull out of a performance at the Omnia nightclub in Las Vegas as doctors recommended he take a few days off to recover.

A statement on the artist's official Facebook page said: "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. Calvin HQ."

The Beetle was reportedly driven by a 16-year-old girl and had crossed the centre line before the crash.

Harris, who is dating Taylor Swift, suffered a cut in the incident, according to
