Lamar Odom and Khloe K. offer condolences

A New York teen has died after being injured in a car accident involving L.A. Lakers player Lamar Odom last Thursday, New York's WPIX reports.

Odom had been in the city to attend a cousin's funeral, according to WPIX, and had hired a car service for transportation. While driving through Jamaica, Queens, the vehicle carrying Odom hit a motorcyclist, who swerved and collided with the 15-year-old pedestrian. Witnesses, WPIX says, noted that Odom was "devastated" and crying at the scene.

According to the station, the teenager sustained severe head injuries and was transported to Elmhurst Hospital following the accident. He died from his injuries the next day.

Both Odom and his wife, Khloe Kardashian, addressed the incident via Twitter, offering their condolences to the family suffering the loss.

"My thoughts and prayers are with the young boy's family," Odom wrote, with his wife adding, "Our love will give us strength! Love conquers ALL!"

    Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be at the net the easiest thing to be mindful of. I say to you, I certainly get irked whilst other people consider worries that they just do not understand about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the entire thing with no need side-effects , other people can take a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thanks

    Wow, give them a break. This incident just happened, has yet to sink in, I'm sure, and just mind your own business.
    Lamar Odom has a lot of heart, Kloe is family-oriented, and no one should judge or pass on their two cents. You people need to stop being such haters!

    Lamar wasn't driving. This was NOT his fault and he should not be saught after by any lawyer. The driver & his company is to blame.
    Lamar can do what he choses to make peace with the boy's family. I don't need to read about it on CNN.

    Sorry for both families, but remember Lamar was not driving. Lets pray for everyone involved, and remember what someone does for another is not always for public knowledge.

    What is with his smile? alway crooked – with being on TV, can't someone tell him to work on that?? He definitely is not the smartest person, I don't think I've ever heard him complete an entire sentence.

    I bet Chris cant wait to have some grandchildren that halfbreed, stupid pick-a-ninny, dullards that crap all over themselves, steal everything and end up in prison.

    Nice job of parenting there, Chris.

    Seriously, Khloe?! At least Lamar's tweet sounded somewhat compassionate toward the family of the deceased. Khloe's response to his tweet was nothing more than a flippant piece of drivel. At she could've pretended to feel sorry for the family of the dead boy and saved the "love conquers all" fluff for a more appropriate occasion.

      What is fuc@king wrong with you people?? Khloe and Lamar are such emotional people . They are sweet honest people just cause they have money and are on TV etc.. doesnt mean they have to pay for funerals and be they way you all want them to be, If you dont watch their shows and cant truly see how they love life and people and their familys then shame on you all, and have no business talking about the ODOMS AND KARDASHIANS. I always watch their shows and watch all their personalitys and they are truly good people. So stay the h*ll of their twitter pages and blog sites. And go get a life or watch an episode of the kardashians and you might just see what caring and love is....

    It is very possible that the Odom's did send the family a more personal condolences. Why are people so negative!

    That's about as impersonal as you can get! If you're devastated send a card, a phone call, even e-mail, but twitter is so tactless! I suppose to people who use it for everything it's an acceptable mode of communication! For proving Kims a$$ is real maybe, but not for a death!!

    Or better yet send a condolence card. Im guessing they can read and write? That is if Lamar can get over his self pity party.

    Inb4 inevitably classless comments

    Although twitter condolences are classless so I might be too late. Just call the people instead of blathering on about love.

      How do you know they didn't contact the family? They don't have to tell the media what may have gone on between them and the boy's family and friends. Talking publicly about those personal conversations would more so indicate lack of class.

      I coudn't agree more. Twitter, that's how you send your condolensces? Have we moved so far into the digital age that a card or a phone call is unheard of?
