Last Thursday, 31-year old Los Angeles Lakers forward Lamar Odom was involved in car accident, when his driver crashed into a motorcyclist and a 15-year old pedestrian in Queens, New York.

The cyclist and young boy sustained serious injuries and was immediately brought to Elmhurst Hospital. Odom was unhurt but obviously upset, broke down and cried.

It is devastating to know that the accident has escalated into a loss of life. The boy who shot through the air upon impact died from injuries . His condition at the hospital revealed that he had multiple head injuries and was prepped up for immediate surgery. Tragically, the patient could not recover and died the following day. His funeral was held last Monday.

This is hard for the boy’s family, and for Odom upon hearing the news.  Odom twitted: Thank you for your support and prayers! My thoughts and prayers are with the young boys family. (sic!).”

I wonder what action has been taken upon the hired driver? And whose fault was it? And what’s the update on the motorcyclist?
