He had been told twice the situation was unsafe and to return to his car. However, he was hit as he crossed the city's Sepulveda Boulevard.While Justin was not in the car at the time of the accident, he reached out to offer his condolences to Chris' family following the incident.The pop superstar said: "While I was not present nor directly involved with this tragic accident, my thoughts and prayers are with the family of the victim."Hopefully this tragedy will finally inspire meaningful legislation and whatever other necessary steps to protect the lives and safety of celebrities, police officers, innocent public bystanders and the photographers themselves."
