A photographer hoping to snap a few pics of Justin Bieber’s Ferrari died after being hit by another car.

According to gossip site TMZ, the paparazzo had been following Bieber’s white Ferrari when it was pulled over during a routine traffic stop by California Highway Patrol. The photographer tried to take pictures of the event, but was advised to move back by the traffic officials because they feared the situation was unsafe.

Unfortunately for the photographer, that indeed proved to be the case as, some time later, he was struck by an oncoming vehicle.

Justin Bieber wasn’t even in the vehicle. According to TMZ’s sources, the Ferrari was being driven by a friend of the pop star.
