DJ Calvin Harris was briefly hospitalized Friday night after a serious car crash, suffering injuries apparently serious enough to require an ambulance. However, asking the star to stay put in the hospital to recover turned out to be something Harris just wasn’t comfortable with without a private room.
TMZ reported that law enforcement agents claimed Harris was a passenger in a Cadillac SUV when a Volkswagen Beetle convertible driven by a 16-year-old girl crossed the center line and crashed into his vehicle on the 3500 block of Coldwater Canyon Avenue, at about 11 p.m.
According to TMZ, the VW Beetle was filled with teenagers and the accident was so violent that one of the passengers sitting on her boyfriend’s lap was ejected from the car upon impact.
Calvin suffered a laceration on his face that was bad enough to require immediate attention.
Paramedics took him to an Los Angeles hospital, where he asked for a private room, and when they said one wasn’t available he hopped off the gurney and left “against medical advice.”
The driver and her passenger who was ejected were also taken to the hospital. TMZ said the girl who was ejected suffered a broken pelvis. She is believed to be in stable condition with non-life threatening injuries, according to police.
Harris was scheduled to play at the Hangout Music Festival in Gulf Shores, Ala., on Saturday night, but his slot was filled by Panic! At the Disco.
