Justin Bieber was involved in a minor fender bender in his Ferrari on Tuesday in Los Angeles. The pop singer was driving through Studio City when a Honda driver crashed into his car.
Bieber walked away from the accident uninjured, reported the Los Angeles Police Department.
“No one was injured, and there was no damage to either vehicle,” a statement from the LAPD says.
The singer’s assistant was a passenger in the car at the time of the collision. When the police arrived at the scene, paparazzi were already there.
The driver of the Honda was not arrested because “there was no crime…it was just a minor accident,” patrol officer John Seffel said. “It was so minor, so we didn’t file a report.”
This is not the first time Bieber has gained attention while driving.
In July, the 17-year-old was pulled over by police in South Beach, while driving his singer friend Sean Kingston’s Rolls Royce. An undercover police officer was driving behind Bieber when he decided to stop the singer because he thought Bieber looked too young to be driving the convertible. Once Bieber showed the officer his ID the entire matter was sorted out in minutes.
During the singer’s rise to fame, Bieber has never concealed his faith in God.
Just a few days ago, Bieber won Best Male Video at the MTV VMAs and rather than claim sole credit for his success, the pop sensation thanked his Lord, Jesus Christ.
“I just want to say thank you so much, not only to God but to Jesus,” Bieber said. “Because I wouldn’t be here without him. He’s really blessed me. He’s put me in this position. So I want to say thank you so much.”
Twitter users were delighted the phrase “God and Jesus” was on the network’s trend list and have credited Bieber.
In August, at the Teen Choice Awards, the singer won best Male Artist and during his acceptance speech said, “You gotta keep God first, and always remember to keep family first. Jesus loves every one of you and I wanna say thank you so much you guys are amazing.”
At the 2010 VMAs, the singer was also a winner and said, “He’s really blessed me. He’s put me in this position. So I want to say thank you so much.”
