SEPULVEDA PASS (CBSLA.com) — A paparazzo was fatally struck by a car after taking photos of Justin Bieber’s white Ferrari during a traffic stop Tuesday, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
Shortly before 6 p.m., California Highway Patrol officers had pulled over the Ferrari for allegedly speeding on the 405 Freeway near the Getty Center.
The 18-year-old Canadian singer was not in the vehicle during the traffic stop, LAPD Commander Andrew Smith reported. Officers say a friend of Bieber’s was driving the vehicle.
The paparazzo reportedly parked his SUV on Sepulveda Boulevard and ran across the street to get a better view of the Ferrari as it sat parked on the freeway.
