Calvin Harris was rushed to hospital following a car accident in Los Angeles on Friday (20.05.16).

TMZ reports that Calvin was treated for a laceration to his face but left "against medical advice" because there were no private rooms available.

Calvin, who was a passenger in the SUV, had been on his way to Las Vegas to perform at Omnia nightclub but had to pull out following the accident.

A message on his Facebook page read: "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's latest single, 'That Is What You Came For', sees him team up with Rihanna - who he worked with five years ago on 'We Found Love' - again and he finds her "iconic" voice always makes his music better.

He said: "She has an iconic voice and when you give her a certain type of song it's just next level."

Calvin has also been recording with Ellie Goulding again, but is still unsure how the finished track will sound.

He said: "We have half a track, I don't know about the half. You know when you have half a track and you are not really sure how to make it a full track?

"You have just got to step out of the studio, step outside, sit down on the grass, make a sandwich and just let the idea come.

"If the idea doesn't come to you, then you weren't supposed to have the idea."
