Lamar Odom was in the backseat of a car involved in an accident where a 15-year-old boy later died. Although the Los Angeles Lakers basketball player has kids of his own, it's no secret that he and the Kardashian sister are trying to get a bun in the oven. The passing of the young boy is certainly a bad period for an otherwise happy couple.
Unfortunately, the star of "Khloe & Lamar" is not the only celebrity to be involved in a car accident involving a fatality.
When the "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" star was at his peak and dating actress Jennifer Grey, he was in a car accident in Ireland. A 30-year-old woman and her 63-year-old mother died instantly. The 49-year-old film and stage actor, and husband to Sarah Jessica Parker, survived the 1987 ordeal, and was fortunate enough not to go to jail. However, he spent considerable time in the hospital. His companion at the time, now 51-years-old and the winner of season 11's "Dancing with the Stars," suffered whiplash.
The R&B singer is normally happy and positive, but her 2006 car accident was anything but. A 38-year-old woman died after she was struck by the star's Range Rover on an L.A. freeway. The star of "Moesha" escaped a jail sentence, but she didn't escape hefty lawsuits, and was forced to settle out of court to more than one suing party.
"It was a situation that changed my life forever," said the 32-year-old season 11 " Dancing with the Stars" participant. "I will never be the same."
The beautiful 39-year-old actress has more than a sex tape in her past. In 2001, she accidentally struck and killed a nine-year-old boy with her car. The TV and film actress paid the price with three years' probation for vehicular manslaughter, a suspension of her license and more. She also settled out of court with the boy's family.
