A photographer spotted Justin Bieber’s Ferrari and crossed the street to snap photos thinking Justin was inside. However, Justin had lent the car to a friend and the friend was the one who was pulled over by a police officer at the time.
The police officer reportedly asked the photographer to cross the street and go back to his own car multiple times before the photographer heeded the officer. As the photographer crossed the street he was struck and killed by oncoming traffic. That is so sad!
Justin has released a statement about the tragedy:
While I was not present nor directly involved with this tragic accident, my thoughts and prayers are with the family of the victim. 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.
