Paparazzi hunt celebrities for a living and this story is proof that this life style could be fatal. According to a report from TMZ, which was later confirmed by CBS Los Angeles, a photographer was killed in Los Angeles while he was trying to snap a picture of Justin Bieber’s white Ferrari 458 Italia.
The incident occurred near the Getty Center on Sepulvelda Blvd: the 458 Italia was pulled over by California Highway Patrol for a routine check. The photographer was apparently trying to get some close-ups when officers told him to step back. Unfortunately enough for the photographer he did as the officers told him. According to the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), the photographer, whose name is not yet released, was then hit by an oncoming vehicle and killed.
Police are currently investigating the exact circumstances under which the accident occurred. Ironically enough, the young pop star whom the paparazzi was trying to snap a photo of wasn’t even in the car, he had lent it to two of his friends.
