Lakers and reality television star Lamar Odom was in New York for the funeral of a family member when a car he was a passenger of was involved in a fatality accident.
The 15-year-old pedestrian hurt in the chain reaction crash has passed away.
Lamar Odom tweeted: “My thoughts and prayers are with the young boys family”
Odom was back East to attend the funeral of his cousin — and had hired a car service to drive him around town during his visit.
Odom’s chaffeur allegedly hit a motorcycle which then struck a 15-year-old boy.
The boy was rushed to a nearby hospital and died the following day. NYDailyNews reports the boy’s name as Ewsas Islam, and that upon his death, his organs were donated.
