Calvin Harris is a pretty lucky dude (and no, that’s NOT a statement about Taylor Swift).
The musician was in a pretty bad car accident on Friday night, that could have been even worse if the SUV Calvin was riding in had been struck head on and a couple seconds earlier.
Here are the deets: at 11 pm on Friday, a VW Bug driven by a 16-year-old was speeding up Coldwater Canyon when she lost control and crossed the dividing line, smashing into an SUV that just so happened to have Harris as a passenger. One of the girls in the VW was ejected from the car and Calvin was rushed to the hospital.
This is where things get weird: Calvin was taken to a local hospital for a facial laceration and according to TMZ, law enforcement sources tell us he asked for a private room, and when they couldn’t accommodate him, he got off the gurney and left, against medical advice. A rep for Calvin disputes that statement and says he was cleared to leave, though it’s definitely fact that he had to cancel 2 gigs because of the accident. Whatever happened, settle down, Calvin. Maybe have some stitches and a breather?
The girl who was ejected suffered a broken pelvis, but she should be okay.
