While a minor collision between Justin Bieber's Ferarri and a Honda Civic in a Los Angeles area parking garage did not even warrant a police report, the story was reported by hundreds of media outlets and made the rounds on Twitter, with overzealous Beliebers temporarily fearing for the pop star's safety.
Beiber is just fine. No one was injured and there was no damage to either vehicle, the Los Angeles Police Department said in a press release.
The Los Angeles Times reports that paparazzi made it to the scene before the police did. The accident took place in Studio City, Calif., around noon on Tuesday.
Bieber, 17, was behind the wheel of his Ferrari during the parking garage collision, and his assistant was in the passenger seat, Access Hollywood reported.
In June, a media misunderstanding had panicked Bieber fans believing the singer was attacked by a male fan who jumped over a security barrier during a promotional event at Macy's in New York City. The attacker turned out to be a member of Bieber's security detail, who had come to the youngster's aid when a barricade started to fall under the crush of fans.
Also in June, Bieber was driving his friend Sean Kingston's Rolls Royce (with the top down) in Miami when the car was mobbed by fans. According to TMZ, Bieber flagged down a plainclothes police officer to help free him from the fan frenzy.
