A terrible accident happened on Tuesday night when Chris Guerra a freelance paparazzi was trying to snap photos of Justin Bieber’s white Ferrari and he was struck by an upcoming car. Chris Guerra died at the hospital, Justin was not in the car.
29-year-old Chris Guerra was hit by a car after he took photos of Justin Bieber’s $200.000 458 Italia Ferrari with rapper Lil Twist behind the wheel, the car was pulled over by police officer on an I-405 off ramp in Los Angeles, Guerra was told twice to get back to his car, he was struck by another car as he was running back to his own vehicle after taking pictures of the star’s car.
‘He verbally ordered him to return to the vehicle, he had to order him twice and he seemed reluctant to go back, but eventually he did.
“When the photographer returned to the vehicle it did not appear that he was looking and he was struck by a vehicle traveling southbound.”
The driver a woman, would likely not face charges, she called 911 and stopped others cars from hitting Chris’s body. He was rushed to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles where he later died.
Justin Bieber Tweeted about the accident and so did Miley Cyrus.
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.’
Chris Guerra was born Christopher James Guerra on September 4, 1983 he worked as a freelance photographer in California, before that he was working a Las Vegas Casino. He was not married and didn’t had any children.
Our thoughts and prayers g out to his family and friends throughout this terrible time.
