Justin Bieber accidentally a struck a member of the paparazzo with his pickup truck around 9:30 pm last night in Beverly Hills.

The incident occurred as Bieber was leaving a City Church event at the Saban Theater. Photographers swarmed the “Sorry” singer’s vehicle as he left the event. Bieber attempted to “gun it” out of the parking lot when he accidentally struck a 57-year-old photographer.

Video of the incident was posted to social media overnight:

Bieber immediately exited the truck, and he offered assistance to the victim. The 23-year-old pop star stayed at the 57-year-old man’s side for nearly 10 minutes until paramedics arrived.

Police spoke with Justin on the scene, but they did not issue any citations. In fact, Bieber was allowed to leave the scene. He was driven home by a friend ultimately.

The victim is facing non-life threatening injuries to his lower body. He posted a video late Wednesday thanking Bieber for his “compassion,” according to TMZ.

It’s been quite a week for the Biebs, of course. The remainder of his Purpose Tour was abruptly canceled due to “unforeseen circumstances" on Monday. Some sources say it’s because of Bieber’s “spiritual awakening.”
