Lamar Odom crashes Mercedes-Benz after losing control of his car

Lamar Odom crashed his Mercedes-Benz into two parked cars during an early morning incident this week, TMZ reports.

The former NBA star’s rep told the outlet that Odom lost control of his vehicle while driving home from a friend’s residence in Northridge, Calif., around 3 a.m.

The incident occurred after Odom dropped his cell phone while driving. As he bent down to retrieve it, he accidentally crashed into the two vehicles parked in a neighborhood near his home.

According to TMZ, the parked vehicles were fortunately empty at the time of the accident and no injuries were reported.

The Los Angeles Police Department was called and later arrived on scene to speak with Odom.

TMZ reports that officers asked Odom if he had been drinking — prompting the former Lakers star to inform them about his sobriety and ownership of various rehab centers.
