The Kelly Oubre Jr hit and run case has raised some concerns due to a lack of clarity. The police recently revealed that they have been unable to find any footage of the location where Oubre was allegedly hit by a vehicle. This has led to questions about the investigation and the ability of the police to gather crucial evidence. The absence of any video evidence raises doubts about the veracity of the claims made by Oubre and the possibility that other factors may be at play in this incident.
Philadelphia police said Wednesday they have yet to find any videotape evidence of an alleged hit-and-run accident involving 76ers guard Kelly Oubre, and coach Nick Nurse is standing by his player.
In an email to The Associated Press, Officer Miguel Torres said there was no update, and an investigation is ongoing into the report that the 27-year-old Oubre was struck by a car while crossing a street on Saturday night in downtown Philadelphia, leaving the player with a broken rib, cuts and lacerations.
“No video has been recovered,” Torres said in his email.
The Philadelphia Inquirer reported police department spokesman Sgt. Eric Gripp said Wednesday that surveillance footage recovered so far showed “no evidence that a crash occurred at the Center City intersection where Oubre reported being hit on Saturday night.”
TMZ has released a video clip of Kelly Oubre Jr., a NBA player, returning home and telling his wife, Shylynn, that he was hit by a car. When Oubre Jr. complained of intense pain, Shylynn called 911 for help.
There is a possibility that Oubre Jr., who is new to the area, may have confused the streets due to being heavily medicated at the time of the incident.
The source of the RING footage from Oubre’s apartment, which was obtained by TMZ, has generated curiosity among social media users.
