Teenager dies after being caught in Lamar Odom’s car accident

NBA player Lamar Odom is “devastated” after finding out the terrible news of the outcome of the car accident he was involved in. The teenager that was caught in the car crash has died. Several witnesses claim to have seen Odom cry.

The basketball star and husband of reality TV star Khloe Kardashian is going through a tragic time in his life for almost a week now. Last Thursday Odom was in New York City, in his old neighborhood Jamaica, from Queens, sitting comfortable on the back seat of a car with a hired driver without any presentment of what was going to happen next. He was coming back from a funeral he had attended when, at a certain point, the vehicle struck a motorcycle that immediately hit a teenage pedestrian. The teenager, who was 15 years old, was rushed to the Elmhurst Hospital in Queens. He had several head injuries and was prepared for emergency surgery. Unfortunately, after the medical intervention, the patient’s state did not improve. He died one day later, on Friday. His funerals were held on Monday. The boy’s name was not released to the press.

The day of the accident, Lamar Odom was heading back home from New York, where he attended his cousin’s funeral. Following the tragedy, he received many encouragement messages. He answered them all with a tweet: “Thank you for your support and prayers! My thoughts and prayers are with the young boys family. (sic)”. Khloe Kardashian, his wife, also tweeted a message of encouragement for all the people who were involved in the accident or had to suffer from it: “My heart/soul goes out 2every1 in pain from any suffering. Pray 4 all of the angels surrounding us constantly. May our spirits stay strong.”

Initially, it was thought that Khloe was also in the car the time of the accident, but she set the record straight when her publicist, Jill Fritzo said that ‘Khloe wasn’t in the car [and] Lamar was in the back seat”. There is no report yet on the heath state of the motorcycle driver.

  1. The Weird thing iz this past weekend I was in NY staying in Queens. I remembered a kid riding a small dirt bike towards traffic in the street and almost hit him. I wonder if that was the same kid.

  2. I feel.soo bad for the boy and his family and friends. Lamar, sorry you were also involved. I’ve never met you but from t.v. show, you seem like a stand up guy. You have a strong support group and remember, you cannot change the plans God has mad. There was nothing you could have done to change the outcome. Keep your head up. Mark
