Pop star Justin Bieber reportedly hit a member of the paparazzi with his pickup truck late Wednesday in Beverly Hills, California.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Bieber accidentally hit the 57-year-old man about 9:30 p.m. near the intersection of Hamilton Drive and Wilshire Boulevard, Beverly Hills police said. CNN reported that City Church had just held a service at the nearby Saban Theatre.
TMZ and other outlets, including ABC News, posted a video of Bieber starting his truck, which is surrounded by paparazzi. The photographer is shown walking toward Bieber's vehicle as Bieber begins to drive away. The truck then hits the man. Bieber also appears to try to help the man after the incident.
The man is being treated at a nearby hospital for "injuries that were not life-threatening," the LA Times reported. Bieber was not injured.
CNN reported that no one was cited in the crash.
Bieber recently made headlines when he canceled the remaining dates of his "Purpose" tour "due to unforeseen circumstances."
