A man has been killed while he crossed the road in an attempt to take a photo of Justin Bieber's Ferrari in LA. 

A friend of Justin Bieber's was driving his car when he got pulled over by the California Highway Patrol, on Sepulveda Boulevard.

The 29 year old photographer - who was not a professional - arrived at the scene and got out of his car to take photos, crossing the boulevard to do so.

On his way back to his car, he was hit by a car and taken to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Centre, where he later died, according to Los Angeles police Officer James Stoughton.

Stoughton also said that no charges are likely to be filed against the motorist who hit the photographer.

The LAPD are currently investigating the incident.

This isn't the first time that the young star has had issues with driving. In November last year, a photographer drove up next to Bieber in order to claim he was driving too fast.

Bieber held up traffic as he responded, "What do your parents think about what you do? Do you tell them, 'I stalk people for a living'?"
