Los Angeles Police Department officials were investigating the death of a photographer who was hit by a car after photographing Justin Bieber's white Ferrari.

The photographer, who was not identified, died at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. Police are interviewing the motorist who hit him but no arrests have been made.

The incident took place on Sepulveda Boulevard near Getty Center Drive shortly before 6 p.m. Bieber's sports car had been pulled over on the 405 Freeway by the California Highway Patrol for a traffic stop. The CHP officer directed the driver of Bieber's car off the freeway onto Sepulveda, according to law enforcement sources. CHP officials said Bieber was not inside the car at the time.

The photographer arrived at the scene, got out of his car and crossed Sepulveda to take photos.

He was hit by the car as he crossed back across the boulevard, the sources said.
