Laker Lamar Odom Crashes, Injures Woman

10/31/2007 3:31 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

I say sue him. If he was drunk send him to jail. If he was drunk then suspend him forever from Basketball. These basketball players need to have a code of conduct they need to follow. Because most of these player come from homes without dads they have no idea how a real man behaves.

re:#4 it is racist stupid people like you that makes the world a dangerous place!
he stayed with the victim and did not run away and you have nerve to put that fact the he is black and rich into the mix,you must be a very unhappy person.concentrate on something positive and do not degrade people by the color of their skin.i am glad that mr.odom and the victim are okay and my prayers goes out to the lady and her family.godspeed
p.s. i live in america and it hurts the hell out of me that people are still very racist in this day and age,it is a shame.

U Guys Are Stupid    

Not a fan = idiot. First of all, the article clearly states that drugs and alcohol were not factors in the accident and that he was concerned. and 2nd of all, where in the article does it state anything about his character that would result in you thinking he's not a good father or man? Because he got into a car accident? Also, before you start posting items about being a good father, you should know he lost his infant baby last year to SIDs. So before you start hating, get your facts straight you inconsiderate @ss.

Ok...wait just a minute here. I am not going to say that we should defend all athletes...but if you do a little research you will realize that Lamar Odom is ONE OF THE GOOD GUY!! One of the few left in professional sports, especially in the NBA. Google him and read about him before you go passing judgements...he has been through a lot and is a 100% stand-up guy!!

Working in professional sports, I can personally say that he is a GREAT person and cares about people. As you can see...there were no drugs, no alcohol, and I believe 100% he was by that ladies side and has probably already sent flowers!!

Odom is for real. He showed he was responsible and attended to the victim. Accidents happen to everybody...no matter what color your skin is. To the illiterate racist, have your heard of good manners and right conduct? Did you even go to school? Did you have parents to show you good manners? Shame on you!

And... the police officer wrote "technical foul" on his ticket, right??? Gee, the rules of basketball are a little different than the rules of the road, hmmmm..... You can't just trample over cars as if they have the ball and you want it.

Obviously Not a fan, can't read...didnt the article say NO DRUGS OR ALCOHOL were evolved or is it that you can't see past the fact that he is a.) a celeb b.) black or c.) rich. and how the hell can you make comments on the fact of him being a "real man" you don't even know him. And i'm sure a "real man" would have stayed there with the victim ..LIKE HE DID. Do you know his family or something by saying " most of these player come from homes without dads", u know what just SHUT THE HELL UP! You have no idea what your talking about, making judgements off stereotypes, and just proving why this country is in a state of disrepair now...Ban him from the NBA! (yeah right) maybe someone Banned you from the library and that's why ur so dumb
