Lamar Odom crashed his Mercedes-Benz into two parked cars in 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 reached down to retrieve it, he accidentally rammed into the two vehicles, which were parked in a neighborhood near his home.

According to TMZ, the parked vehicles were luckily empty at the time of the crash and no injuries occurred.

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

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