Harris was travelling on Coldwater Canyon south of Ventura Blvd. in a Cadillac SUV around 11 p.m. when his SUV collided head-on with a Volkswagen bug that took a tight curve too quickly, according to the LAPD.

Harris suffered a small cut on the bridge of his nose and was taken to the hospital, but later left.

There were five people in the VW bug, which was driven by a 16-year-old girl. One of the passengers who was not wearing a seat belt was ejected from the car and suffered a broken pelvis, police said.

The musician was forced to cancel a show in Las Vegas due to the crash, according to a post on his Facebook page.

Harris is scheduled to perform tonight in Gulf Shores at the Hangout Music Fest. He is a headliner of the festival.

Alcohol was not believed to be a factor in the crash.
