Lamar Odom

Car Crash

Days Before DUI Arrest

8/30/2013 2:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0830_lamar_odom_tmzLamar Odom allegedly pulled a Kylie Jenner just 6 days before his DUI arrest -- rear-ending another car and causing a chain-reaction collision on an L.A. freeway.

The 3-car accident occurred at around 6 PM on the 101 Freeway -- the same freeway on which Lamar was popped for DUI on Friday morning.

So how did the media find out about the story? Turns out ... the person Lamar hit is a reporter for the L.A. Times. It's unclear why the Times waited so long to publish the story.

According to the reporter, Lamar's white Mercedes slammed into the back of his ride near the Gower Street exit.

After the collision, the reporter says he tried to swap insurance info with Odom ... but the NBA star was resistant ... and insisted the damage "doesn't even look that bad."

Eventually, the reporter says he obtained Odom's insurance info ... but when he tried to give the insurance card back to Lamar, he bizarrely resisted at first ... before realizing he needed to have his insurance card to drive.

The reporter says the accident was not reported to the cops.

TMZ and Kris are going in on Lam. Trying to make him look real bad to keep their brand intact. Guess they learned from the Kris Humphrey debacle.

Is "protecting celebrities/athletes" an unwritten rule for most journalists?

The Gods are angry with this guy for having sex with his Ubangi revolting wife and are now exacting revenge.

Unlike her relatives, Baby North West is apparently a little brainiac - she's already speaking - her first word was reportedly " OXYCONTIN"

Shouldn't that read 8/26/13 not 9/26/13? Are we planning Lamar's future now?
