Sources tell us Oubre returned home shortly after being hit … and when his wife saw him in serious pain, she called 911.…. “
This footage will significantly aid the Philadelphia police in probing the alleged hit-and-run incident.
Initial reports indicated a lack of surveillance recordings validating Kelly Oubre’s claim of being hit by a vehicle.
“The Police Department currently does not have any video or photographic evidence that depicts this collision,” Sgt. Eric Gripp, a department spokesperson, said Wednesday. “We continue to work in hopes of gathering evidence and we encourage anyone who has information to reach out to our crash investigation unit.”
Moreover, two adjacent shop owners asserted that nothing of the sort transpired on the reported day of the incident, last Saturday.
