A “devastated” Lamar Odom and Khloé Kardashian have taken to social media to express their sympathy following a horrific car crash that claimed life of a 15-year-old boy.

Odom, in New York for a cousin’s funeral, was the passenger in the backseat last Thursday when a collision occurred in Jamaica, Queens. The car he was riding in struck a motorcycle, which then hit the teen, who was a pedestrian.

Though rushed to a hospital for surgery, the boy, whose name has not been reported, died Monday, according to New York’s Daily News.

Odom, 31, Tweeted: “Thank you for your support and prayers! My thoughts and prayers are with the young boys family.”

His wife, Kardashian, 27, added on her Twitter page: “My heart/soul goes out 2every1 in pain from any suffering. Pray 4 all of the angels surrounding us constantly. May our spirits stay strong.

“Above all, love each other deeply, b/c love covers over a multitude of sins. Offer hospitality 2 1another without grumbling 1 Peter 4:8-9

“Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

“Our love will give us strength! Love conquers ALL!”

Not that every message was sweetness and light. Following some criticism of her on the site, Kardashian wrote: “Stop judging other people’s lives that u know NOTHING about! My husband&I r in NY 4a funeral 4 his fam. Senseless violence is disgusting!!”
