NEW YORK, (KTLA) -- A 15-year-old boy has died after he was hit last week by a limo carrying Lakers forward and reality T.V. star Lamar Odom, reports confirmed Monday.

Odom was in New York to attend a funeral and shoot a Nike commercial.

The accident happened on Thursday when Odom was riding in a chauffeur driven limousine that struck a motorcyclist and a 15 year-old pedestrian. Both were rushed to Elmhurst hospital for treatment.

According to reports, the teen sustained major head injuries and died of his injuries on Friday.

Odom was not hurt.

Odom was reportedly on his way to a visit a barber shop in his old Jamaica neighborhood when the accident took place in Queens.

Khloe Kardashian, Odom's wife, was not with him at the time of the crash.

Kardashian tweeted "Angels are surrounding me always/ Thank you!!" when she found out Odom was not hurt.

Odom says he was "shaken up" by the incident.
