If Calvin Harris actually shows up to the Billboard Music Awards post car accident, we'll all be thoroughly surprised

Musician Calvin Harris was injured in a car crash on Friday in Los Angeles and has been forced to cancel two shows while he recovers.

The Scottish DJ, who has been dating Taylor Swift for more than a year, was a passenger in a Cadillac SUV when a 16-year-old female driver in a Volkswagen Beetle convertible reportedly crossed over the center divider and hit Harris' vehicle. The girl, who wasn't wearing a seatbelt, was ejected from her seat and is being treated for a broken pelvis. There were other passengers in her car at the time, but their conditions are unknown.

Harris was taken to a hospital and treated for, among other injuries, a cut to the nose. He has since been released and is recovering.

A representative for Harris, whose real name is Adam Wiles, released this statement about the incident: "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 the 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."

Harris was set to headline the Hangout Festival and was on his way to the airport when the accident took place. And with the Billboard Music Awards happening on Sunday, May 22, we likely won't see him there either.

No word yet from Swift, but you can be sure the singer will rush to be by his side. Here's hoping for a speedy recovery for everyone involved in this scary incident.
