E! News reports that Los Angeles Lakers star Lamar Odom was involved in a car accident while on his way to his cousin's funeral in New York.

Odom's vehicle apparently collided with a motorcyclist, who was seriously injured along with a teenage pedestrian. They are being treated for injuries at a Queens hospital.

Odom wasn't driving the car and wasn't hurt, a Kardashian rep told E! He was reportedly riding in the backseat. His wife, Kloe, who wasn't in the car at the time, tweeted, "Angels are surrounding me always/Thank you!!" when she got word that Odom was unharmed.

NBC Philadelphia reports that the names and health status of the two victims have not been released and that Odom claims he was "shaken up" by the incident.
