Calvin thanked fans for their support

The Scottish-born DJ was a passenger in a Cadillac SUV when it was hit by a Volkswagen Beetle, and suffered a laceration to the face. After being taken to hospital, the star reportedly left "against medical advice" when no private rooms were available.

Calvin's team broke the news of his accident on Facebook. Using Calvin's real name, Adam Wiles, they wrote: "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."

The team followed up the statement by confirming that two of Calvin's gigs would be cancelled, writing: "Adam is still recovering from the injuries sustained in the car accident last Friday. Unfortunately, as a result he will not be able to perform in Las Vegas at Hakkasan tonight, 5/26 and Omnia tomorrow, 5/27.

"He has asked us to pass on his apologies to everyone who was due to attend the shows and hopes to be back to his normal schedule soon."

Fans have been sending their well-wishes to the DJ, with one commenting on Facebook: "My heart skipped a beat hope you are ok. Get as much rest you need," while another joked: "Wishing you a SWIFT recovery," referencing Calvin's relationship with singer Taylor Swift.

Taylor, who has yet to speak out since the crash, pulled out of the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday after Calvin's accident.
