Lamar Odom won’t be able to drive his vehicle for a while!
Accordingly TMZ On Sunday, the 43-year-old former basketball player was involved in a minor car accident. A representative for Lamar told the outlet that he was driving home from a friend’s apartment in the Northridge neighborhood of Los Angeles around 3 a.m. Monday when he suddenly dropped his cell phone in his car Mercedes. While reaching down to grab it, the athlete lost control of the steering wheel and crashed into two cars parked on the street! OMG!

His representative explained that the car hit another white vehicle with so much force that it spun forward and hit another stationary car. Damned. That’s when Lamar’s airbags deployed. Fortunately, he was not injured and did not require medical attention. However, Lamar was understandably a little shaken by the accident and the car now shows significant damage. Images obtained from TMZ showed that the fender was partially torn and dented.
And fortunately, no one was in the parked cars at the time of the accident. The Los Angeles Police Department was called to the scene. When police arrived, they asked Lamar if he had consumed alcohol, to which he denied because he was sober and had been to several rehab facilities. Police did not feel it was necessary to conduct a field sobriety test or file a police report. The owners of the other cars eventually left their homes to exchange insurance information. In the end, Lamar’s Mercedes was towed and he was taken home by his security detail.
He was very lucky! Hopefully Lamar has learned an important lesson: always keep your eyes on the road! Reactions? Write them in the comments below.
