Justin Bieber in car crash as chased by paparazzo

JUSTIN Bieber was involved in a car crash, but fortunately no one was hurt.

The 20-year-old star was travelling in an Escalade when it was reportedly hit by a BMW that was pulling out of a parking garage near Bouchon restaurant in Beverly Hills, California at approximately 2 p.m.

An eyewitness told gossip website TMZ.com that the 'Confident' hitmaker - who wasn't behind the wheel - was unfazed by the collision and almost immediately jumped out of the SVU and into another vehicle to continue his journey.

The source said that Justin's Escalade was being chased by a paparazzo at the time of the incident and the BMW misjudged the speed it was travelling at before smashing into it.

The Canadian star recently moved into two new rental properties in the upmarket neighbourhood, and it was previously reported that police have been called to his apartments twice already because of his alleged partying.

Justin has rekindled his on-again, off-again relationship with Selena Gomez, whom he first started dating in 2010, but the 21-year-old beauty wants to take their romance slowly this time.

A source said: "She still loves him. It is hard for her to get over him, because they have so much history.

"You just can't drop those feelings. There is too much there."
