The 15-year-old boy has died of the major head injuries he suffered following a New York car accident involving Los Angeles Lakers star Lamar Odom.
Merely hours after it was uncovered that his recent car accident in New York ended up with a death of a 15-year-old boy, Los Angeles Lakers star Lamar Odom made use of his Twitter to offer his condolence to the victim's family. The husband of Khloe Kardashian wrote, "My thoughts and prayers are with the young boys family..."
Lamar was in the Big Apple last Thursday, July 14 for his cousin's funeral. He was being driven by a car service when the car got into a collision with a motorcyclist, whose motorcycle was propelled into the teenager. Both the motorcyclist and the boy were rushed to a hospital in Queens to be treated for their injuries. Words are, the 31-year-old NBA player was seen crying at the scene.
Family of the teen boy told TMZ that he suffered major head injuries because of the accident. He had also undergone emergency surgery, but passed away the following day. A funeral for the teenager has taken place earlier on Monday, June 18.
Previously, it was rumored that Lamar's reality star wife Khloe was also in the car when the accident happened. Her representative, however, was quick to clarify that was not the case. After news of the car crash broke out, the 27-year-old tweeted, "My heart/soul goes out 2every1 in pain from any suffering. Pray 4all of the angels surrounding us constantly. May our spirits stay strong."
