Police are still investigating the death of a young photographer who was struck by an oncoming car Tuesday evening just after 6pm while snapping photos of Justin Bieber's white Ferrari.

Although Bieber was not in the car or at the scene, the 18-year-old performer released the following statement:

    "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."

The photographer's name has not been released.

UPDATE: The photographer has been identified as Chris Guerra.
