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."

It was inevitable and sad, but he chose to do something stupid, nobody made him do it. And now the others like him are feeding off of his death to whip up another story and payday.

If the azzhole driver of Justin(e)s car wasn't speeding none of this would have happened.

Choosing to work as a Paparazzi can be a dangerous job, it just goes with the territory, especially if your gonna stand in the middle of on coming traffic trying to get the money shot. This was a tragic accident but the Photog chose to put himself in danger for the big scoop.

How much did this "friend" make selling the last phone call to TMZ and others? He didn't for sure didn't give it out for free. He must not be the "good Christian" he's referring to.

Good Christians.. AHA.. intelligent people realize when someone is driving recklessly to get a picture of someone's PRIVATE life, it is there own damn fault when they die.. Bieber could have been smoking crack with a baby in the car and it wouldn't make this crash his fault.
