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 Feel So Close singer 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."

"He has been examined by doctors and told to rest for a few days."
