Justin Bieber hit a press photographer with his truck while trying to leave an event, according to police in Beverly Hills.
The local police department said the incident took place on Wednesday night (July 26) and there is no suggestion there was any malice or intent involved.
It is believed that the 23-year-old Canadian star had been attending an event at a local church.
Bieber reportedly stayed at the scene during the investigation but has now left the scene, according to a police source quoted by CNN.
A video recorded at the scene of the accident shows Bieber offering assistance to the photographer, who was taken to a local hospital having sustained minor injuries.
Bieber recently cancelled the remainder of his world tour due to "unforeseen circumstances" and has reportedly been staying in the Los Angeles area over recent days.
