A man suspected of being a paparazzi photographer has been killed when he was struck by a car after photographing Justin Bieber’s Ferrari. As reported by NME, the unnamed man was taking pictures of Bieber’s white Ferrari before crossing Sepulveda Boulevard and being struck by a motorist on January 1, 2013.
According to The LA Times, Bieber’s vehicle was “pulled over by the California Highway Patrol for a traffic stop”, although NME reports that Bieber was not in the car at the time. Reportedly, it was during this time that the photographer took some pictures of the Ferrari before being hit by an undisclosed car.
As a result of the accident, the photographer suffered fatal injuries and he died soon after in a nearby hospital. Police have stated that the driver of the vehicle involved in the accident will most likely not be charged. Bieber is yet to make any kind of statement regarding the incident.
