A celebrity photographer was killed by oncoming traffic while trying to snap a picture of Justin Bieber’s white Ferrari. The singer wasn’t in the car at the time, but TMZ reports that the photographer had been following Bieber all day.

Bieber released a statement, saying, "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."
