Los Angeles Laker Lamar Odom, who is married to Khloe Kardiashian, was riding in the backseat of a vehicle on Thursday in New York City when his chauffeur struck a motorcycle, which in turn hit a 15-year-old boy.
The teenager sustained major head injuries and was taken to Elmhurt hospital, where he sadly passed away last night.
Odom was unhurt, but is devastated by the news, and Tweeted: “Thank you for your support and prayers! My thoughts and prayers are with the young boys family.”
Wife Khloe also took to Twitter to extend her sympathies, writing: “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.”
