Los Angeles Laker forward Lamar Odom was involved in a car accident over the weekend that killed a 15-year-old boy and severely injured another man.
Lamar returned to his native Queens last week to attend the funeral of his uncle when the Cadillac Escalade was hit by a motorcycle which then spun out of control striking the teenage pedestrian.
While his wife, reality TV star Khloe Kardashian was in New York with her husband, her publicist said that she was not in the SUV at the time of the car crash.
A source closed to Lamar said that the Laker player was “shaken up” by the incident and he posted this on his Twitter account on “my thoughts and prayers are with the young boy’s family.”
Lamar was not injured in the accident and the 32-year-old motorcyclist remains in stable condition at Elmhurst Hospital Center in Queens.
Our condolences to the family of the young boy. So sad.
