The last person to speak with the photog who was killed Tuesday following Justin Bieber's car tells TMZ ... Chris Guerra was quite sure Justin had been smoking pot while driving earlier in the day.

The person who spoke with Chris at 5:16 PM -- less than an hour before he was killed -- did not want us to use his name.  He's also a photog who took Chris under his wing, and says Chris was one of his closest friends.

He also says he believes Justin is partly to blame for Chris' death because of the singer's reckless driving history and alleged pot smoking which made it a big story to follow.

As for Miley Cyrus' comments, he says, "Good Christians that I know ... don't throw stones at people who get killed."

Yes, it's BIEBERS fault that your friend ignored police orders and walked accross a busy road to get a photo of a car that Bieber wasn't even in! It's BIEBERS fault that he was hit by a totally different driver who had nothing to do with Bieber.... you cannot be this dumb without some kind of drug, it's not possible.

I really don't see how any of this is Justin's fault. IF he "drove recklessly," an easy fix would be DON'T FOLLOW HIM.......

I guess we all need someone to blame but even that is a stretch..This guy made a decision to risk his life for a picture. He has no one to blame but himself.

The stupid ass was standing in the road the police told him to get back. The only one to blame was this stupid ass.

Another person looking to place blame and not take responsibility for what what his own actions. I sincerely hate that he lost his life, can only imagine how the person who hit him must feel - but get real. And I am way toooooo old to be a Biber fan.

Another person who needs to play the blame game instead of placing responsibility where it should be. I feel sincerely sorry that someone lost his life trying to make a dollar and can only imagine how the person who hit him must feel, but get real.. And I am way toooooo old to be a Biber fan, so it's not that.

What a bunch of crap. No matter who they were trying to photograph, this bunch of bottom feeders will never take responsibility for themselves. And this idiot who was a friend is just looking for his 15 minutes of fame. The guy died because he was stupid, plain and simple. Blaming it on someone who wasn't even there shows the credibility of these morons. And TMZ is just contributing to the stupidity with the headlines they post.

Always blame someone else for the stupidity of yourself. The moron photographer was told by the police to get back in his car. The ONLY person to blame for this was the person who did not follow the orders of the police officer(s). There needs to be a law passed about not harassing celebrities as they go about their personal lives. To say they press has the right to harass people is wrong. If you think the Biebs(who I personally cannot stand) was smokiong pot, call the cops and report him. Then you can take pics as he is handcuffed and taken to jail. Don't risk the lives of innocent people by chasing him around.
