Prior to his DUI bust Friday morning, Lamar Odom got into a minor three-car collision on the same highway days earlier. Find out what went down. It looks like Lamar Odom had some trouble on the road prior to his DUI arrest Friday.

Khloe Kardashian's hubby was reportedly involved in a three-car collision on the same freeway he was busted on today, less than a week before his arrest went down, according to the Los Angeles Times.

One of the publication's reporters, Adolfo Flores, said his car was rear-ended by another vehicle that was hit by Lamar's Mercedes Benz Saturday evening in Los Angeles on the 101 Freeway.

Following the minor crash, Adolfo said he approached Lamar and the other driver's cars to exchange insurance information, but when we got to the former Khloe and Lamar star's vehicle, Lamar wasn't so forthcoming, asking why he needed it.

The car accident "doesn't even look that bad," Lamar reportedly told him.

Adolfo explained that he and the other driver's car had "moderate damage to their bumpers," and Odom's car had "damage near it's driver's side headlight."

After he got Lamar's insurance info, all of the drivers left the scene of the collision, which was not reported to authorities.

Lamar was arrested on suspicion of DUI around 4:00 a.m. Friday near his Tarzana, Calif. home.

According to TMZ, he was pulled over in his white Mercedes SUV after California Highway Patrol officers saw him driving too slow on the highway.

A CHP officer told the LA Times Lamar was driving in a "serpentine manner," showed signs of being under the influence of drugs or alcohol and failed his sobriety test.

Then, he refused to take a chemical test when they arrived at the police station, causing his license to be suspended for a year.

Lamar was held on a $15,000 bail and was released about three hours later.
