Odom was in NY on Thursday to attend a funeral for his cousin -- and had hired a car service to drive him around town during his visit. But while Odom was in the car, the vehicle was involved in an accident with a motorcycle ... which was propelled into a 15-year-old pedestrian.

The boy's family tells us ... the boy sustained major head injuries in the collision.

The boy was rushed to a nearby hospital ... and emergency surgery was performed in an effort to save his life ... but the injuries proved to be too severe ... and the boy died the following day.

A funeral for the boy took place earlier today.

A source close to Lamar tells us ... the NBA star is "devastated" by the tragedy.

Why would TMZ show a picture of Lamar Odom, he didn't do anything and TMZ wants to make it look like he killed the kid, unless you read the story, witch most people don't, so then they just assume it was Odom. How come when Josh Hamilton threw a ball, to short, to a fan in the stands and died, TMX didn't show his picture. TMZ has always done this, they only show certain people's picture to make them look bad and others they cover for so they don't look bad.

Nothing good can ever come from the Kardashian trash heap of losers. First their father lets free a murderer O.J. Simpson and now the trashy daughter's husband 's car kills a young man of 15 years old. What a bunch of disgusting Kardashian self entitled losers. Who gives these idiots their misused and unearned fame and fortune.

Khloe is tweeting about how lucky they are that they are safe. Loser only cares about herself like the self entitled pigs that whole family are. PIGS ugly fat famewhoring pigs. Disgusting.

Nothing good can ever come out of a trashy greedy Kardashian. Shame on your ugly disgusting family. Go away.

How do you know "Sociopaths are Sad", were you in the car when he supposedly said this to the driver?? Mr. Lamar Odom is far from a narcissist, nor is it his fault. Your the only DISGUSTING HUMAN TRASH FILTH!!

He was probably talking to the driver about Kim's sex tape or how Khloe ties him up etc and the driver was not paying attention to his driving...very sad a guy who seems to have values got tangled up with this trashy family and now he is being viewed as trash...

I feel bad for him.. he is a very sweet guy. And I am not the biggest Kardashian fan just because there are just way too many Kardashian shows now.. but Khloe seems like the nicest and most real of the Kardashian sisters. I can't believe some of these comments, seems a lot of people don't have a heart. I said a lot not all!
