The 15-year-old boy struck by a car carrying Khloe Kardashian’s husband, Lamar Odom, has died, E! News reported.

Odom’s chauffeured car, which was escorting the basketball player to a cousin’s funeral in Queens, New York, collided with a motorcycle, causing an accident Thursday. During the accident the motorcycle hit a pedestrian riding a scooter. The teenage boy, along with the motorcyclist, was rushed to the hospital Thursday.

The 15-year-old died at New York City’s Elmhurst Hospital on Friday evening.

“[The boy] passed Friday,” hospital spokesman Dario Centorcelli told E! News. “He was brought in late afternoon about 5:30 p.m. on Thursday. He was on a scooter and was hit by a motorcycle that was hit by another vehicle. He suffered serious head injuries.”

Family and friends gathered to mourn the loss of the young boy during funeral services held Monday.

When they learned of his death, the Lakers basketball star and reality TV celeb tweeted condolences to everyone involved. (Kim Kardashian weighs in on Casey Anthony, discusses O.J. connection)

“My thoughts and prayers are with the young boys [sic] family…” Odom tweeted early Tuesday morning.

Khloe Kardashian wasn’t with Odom in the car at the time of the incident but took to the Twittersphere anyway — not to offer condolences, but to address how the accident would strengthen her and her husband’s bond.

“@HusbandWifeLife Thank you SO much for your love and support!” the reality television star proclaimed on Twitter. “This makes US stronger as a couple! God has us in his hands.”
