Shocking video shows the moment Justin Bieber appears to accidentally run over a photographer outside of the Saban Theater in Beverly Hills on Wednesday.
In the video, Bieber starts up his black pickup truck in front of a slew of paparazzi. As he exits the theater at a slow rate of speed and turns right onto the street, a photographer is seen walking backward as his leg appears to get caught in the wheel well of Bieber’s truck. The man immediately falls to the ground and begins gripping his leg as the 23-year-old singer exits the driver’s seat to check on his condition.
Paparazzi continue taking photos and videos of the accident as Bieber asks the man if there’s anything he can do for him while they wait for police arrive on scene.
“What can we do?” Bieber asks. “What do you need? Is there anything we can do to help you?”
Watch a video of the incident below:
Beverly Hills Police Sgt. Matthew Stout said dispatchers received a call regarding a collision at 9:24 p.m. local time. When officers arrived, they found a 57-year-old man who was injured at the scene. He was transported to a local hospital with “non-life threatening injuries,” Stout said.
Bieber fully cooperated with authorities when they arrived on scene and no citations were issued. He was released following the investigation and reportedly left in a 2017 Aston Martin “that is leased to Kourtney Kardashian,” KTLA reported.
The incident comes just four days after the singer announced he was canceling the rest of his Purpose World Tour. The tour began back in March 2016 and had one more North American leg to go. He was slated to end the tour with stops in Asia.
The statement released by Bieber didn’t offer a full explanation for the decision, but said it was due to “unforeseen circumstances.”
Due to unforeseen circumstances, Justin Bieber will cancel the remainder of the Purpose World Tour concerts. Justin loves his fans and hates to disappoint them. He thanks his fans for the incredible experience of the Purpose World Tour over last 18 months. He is grateful and honored to have shared that experience with his cast and crew for over 150 successful shows across 6 continents during this run. However, after careful consideration he has decided he will not be performing any further dates. Tickets will be refunded at point of purchase.
