CAIRO - 27 July 2017: Justin Bieber accidently hit photographer, Maurice Lamont, with a giant truck after leaving church in Beverly Hills on Wednesday, according to the Guardian.
Prior to the arrival of the police, Bieber ran over to the paparazzo photographer, who had been following his truck, to make sure he was not seriously injured. The victim reportedly suffered minor injuries and was transported to Cedars-Sinai hospital.
No charges have been filed against Justin by the victim, Maurice Lamont.
While lying in his hospital bed, the photographer recorded a video that was shared with TMZ announcing he was doing well. “I’m Ok. Shot getter’s hanging in there everybody,” remarked the 57-year-old photographer.
Mentioning that his birthday was only hours away, the photographer seemed to only have good things to say about Bieber. “He’s a good kid, though. He got out, he was compassionate… accidents happen,” stated Lamont.
While not explicitly claiming fault on Bieber’s part, the photographer did state, “I think the truck was a little bit too big for him though ’cause there’s no way he could see over the front.”
Lamont ended his video by stating, “Hopefully everything works out here. Getting ready to go into the X-rays right now.”
