TMZ, of all outlets, breaking Lakers news

October 31, 2007 | 12:33 pm

Lamar Odom was in a car accident last night on the way to last night's game and suffered a mild concussion.  I exchanged a brief e-mail with somebody from the front office, and LO wasn't hurt much at all (especially in a way that will hinder his shoulder recovery).  I'm also happy to see that there doesn't appear to be any drugs or alcohol involved, and also to hear about Lamar's concern for the victim (not that it particularly surprises me).  We'll keep you in the loop with any developments, but for now, click below the jump for the news.

Special thanks to my girlfriend, who emailed me the TMZ article.  I knew a relationship with somebody addicted to gossip rags would one day pay off.  haha

Laker Lamar Odom Crashes, Injures Woman

Lamar OdomL.A. Lakers star Lamar Odom was involved in a two car crash in Hawthorne, Calif., yesterday morning which sent one person to the hospital.

Police sources tell TMZ they are investigating Odom for allegedly running a red light in his Mercedes and T-boning a Geo Prism driven by a 37-year-old woman. Firefighters had to use the Jaws of Life to extract the victim from the wreckage. The victim's family tells TMZ that she is in serious but stable condition with a head injury and injuries to her left leg.

Sources tell us neither alcohol nor drugs were a factor in the accident, adding Odom stayed with the victim and was very concerned about her well being.

Odom's rep was not immediately available for comment.
