Lakers' Lamar Odom involved in car accident last week
The Lakers forward -- who was in his hometown of Queens, New York, for his cousin's funeral -- was being driven by a chauffeur to a barber shop in his old Jamaica neighborhood Thursday when the car struck and injured a motorcyclist and a pedestrian, according to reports.
The motorcyclist and 15-year-old pedestrian were taken to the hospital with serious injuries, according to MediaTakeOut.com, which first reported the incident. A source told the New York Post that Odom was not seriously injured.
Odom's wife, Khloe Kardashian, was not in the car at the time, according to her publicist.
