LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - Scottish musician Calvin Harris, one of the world's top earning DJs, sustained minor injuries in a car crash in Los Angeles and was taken by ambulance to a hospital, police said on Saturday.

Harris, 32, was a passenger in a sport utility vehicle late on Friday when it was struck by a car that had crossed over the center line, Los Angeles police spokeswoman Norma Eisenman said.

Harris has been released from the local hospital, Eisenman said.

A passenger in the oncoming car was ejected from the vehicle and suffered a broken pelvis, but her injuries are not life-threatening, Eisenman said.

Harris, who is also a record producer, was on the 2015 Forbes magazine list of top earning DJs with an estimated US$66 million (S$) in annual income.

His public profile has risen since he was seen dating pop star Taylor Swift beginning last year.

Harris was being driven to the airport when the accident happened, and he has cancelled his show scheduled for Saturday night at the Omnia Nightclub in Las Vegas, according to a post on his Facebook page.

"He has been examined by doctors and told to rest for a few days," the post said.

A spokeswoman for Harris did not immediately return an e-mail seeking comment.

Harris, whose top recordings include the songs We Found Love and Summer, has worked with singers like Rihanna and Ne-Yo.

His 2014 album Motion debuted at the top of the US dance charts.
