Chris Guerra was so excited about his "big scoop" on Justin Bieber's New Year's Day celebration, but the zeal cost him his life.
In pursuit of a scandalous Bieber photo, the 29-year-old celebrity photographer was struck by a Toyota SUV on Sepulveda Boulevard near Getty Center Drive just before 6pm on Tuesday.
But the driver who hit him will NOT face charges. Having fully cooperated with the authorities, the man seems to be off the hook as Guerra was not crossing in a crosswalk at the time of the incident.
He had just been told by CHP to move away from the white Ferrari he believed Justin to be in when he suffered the hit that would cost him his life at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center.
As we discussed earlier, Chris apparently claimed to have seen Bieber smoking (pot possibly) behind the wheel earlier in the day. And from from the sound of it, it seems like he wanted to catch the scandalous proof himself.
Always always be careful on the streets, everyone!!
