Los Angeles police say Justin Bieber struck a pedestrian with his car in Hollywood Calif., on Monday night, but there was no crime and the injuries aren't life-threatening.

Lt. Craig Valenzuela says Bieber's car collided with someone -- possibly a photographer -- at 11:45 p.m. local time Monday in the 8800 block of Sunset Boulevard.

Valenzuela says nobody was cited or arrested and officers determined no crime was committed. He says investigators are trying to determine whether the pedestrian was in the roadway.

A video posted by TMZ shows the 19-year-old pop star getting into a white Ferrari. He is surrounded by paparazzi and as the car drives off, one falls to the ground and grips his knee. According to the website, LAPD officers interviewed Bieber a few hours after the incident and he said he didn't know he hit the photographer.

A request for comment from Bieber's publicist, Melissa Victor, wasn't immediately returned.
