A paparazzo hoping to get a picture of Justin Bieber in his Ferrari after the vehicle was pulled over by police in Los Angeles got struck and killed by an SUV instead.
And as it turned out, the 18-year-old singer wasn’t even in the sports car, which was driven at the time by his pal, rapper Lil Twist, TMZ reported.
The incident began when the California Highway Patrol pulled over Bieber’s white Ferrari around 6 p.m. Tuesday on the 405 Freeway, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Hat and shoe rest on the roadway where a photographer was struck and killed while trying to take photos of Justin Bieber’s Ferrari.
Police directed the driver to exit the busy roadway onto Sepulveda Boulevard, and shortly afterwards the 29-year-old paparazzo arrived to take pictures, law enforcement sources told the newspaper.
The photographer, identified by TMZ as Chris Guerra, crossed the street to take photos, but was directed by officers to return to his car. When he finally went back to his vehicle, he was struck by an SUV.
Authorities said the man did not look before crossing the roadway, CBS 2 News in Los Angeles reported.
The victim was rushed to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, where he died.
Investigators at the scene of the deadly accident.
Inside the Ferrari, which does belong to Bieber, was not the “Boyfriend” singer but instead two of his friends.
“While I was not present nor directly involved with this tragic accident, my thoughts and prayers are with the family of the victim,” Bieber said in a statement, according to CNN.
“Hopefully this tragedy will finally inspire meaningful legislation and whatever other necessary steps to protect the lives and safety of celebrities, police officers, innocent public bystanders, and the photographers themselves.”
Fellow paparazzi magnet Miley Cyrus, however, was in a far less gracious mood.
The LAPD are investigating, but no charges have been filed.
