A photographer died, after he was struck by a car after clicking photos of Justin Bieber’s white Ferrari on Sepulveda Boulevard near the Getty Center in Los Angeles. The car had been pulled over by the California Highway Patrol for a routine check, when the paparazzo, who had been tailing the Ferrari, attempted to take photographs whilst the cops conducted their check.

Los Angeles Police spokesman James Stoughton said that the photographer parked his car across the street and came to get a closer look at the vehicle and started clicking pictures. Twice the officers told him to retreat. Stoughton said that a car struck the photographer as he was walking back to his car.

The unidentified photographer continued taking pictures until he was asked to step back by the patrol officers on duty, as it could be dangerous.

Paparazzi have been constantly tailing the 18-year old pop star and a high-speed dangerous chase in July had provoked a city councilman to forecast that such celebrity chases could have tragic results. Photographs of the star mean money and paparazzi go to extreme lengths to try and capture the star on their cameras.

Bieber has issued a statement saying that whilst he was neither present at the scene of the accident nor was he in way involved in it, his thoughts and prayers were with the victim and his family. He hoped that this would lead to laws being framed to safeguard the “lives and safety of celebrities, police celebrities, police officers, innocent public bystanders, and the photographers themselves.”
