A 15-yr-old pedestrian has died in a crash last week involving a car carrying Los Angeles Laker Lamar Odom in New York City, TMZ reports

The accident took place on Thursday in New York City as a hired driver shuttled Odom around the city for a cousin's funeral service. While the NBA star was in the car, the vehicle struck a motorcycle, which was then launched into the young boy who later died due to massive head injuries sustained from the accident.

Both Lamar and wife Khloe Kardashian have given words of condolence to the boy's family via twitter. Lamar Odom writes: "My thoughts and prayers are with the young boys family..." Khloe tweeted: "Our love will give us strength! Love conquers ALL!"

TMZ cites a source close to Lamar saying he is "devastated" by the boy's death.
