Sixers forward in trouble as police launch investigation into car crash: report

Philadelphia 76ers forward Kelly Oubre Jr. is the subject of a police investigation following his involvement in a car crash following a Game 2 loss to the New York Knicks.

According to TMZ’s Michael Babcock, the Philadelphia Police Department has launched an internal investigation into its handling of Oubre’s case.

“The question is whether Kelly received special treatment from the police. Oubre, accused of running a red light and crashing into another car, was not cited. Oubre was not even administered a field sobriety test or breathalyzer (although there is no evidence that I am aware of to suggest he was impaired),” Babcock posted on X , formerly Twitter, on April 26.

According to a report from TMZ, Philadelphia police said the car crash involving Oubre occurred around 1:45 a.m. on Tuesday, April 23, after “Oubre’s ‘matte purple 2021 Lambo’ ignored a signal red road’… and crashed into a 2023 Hyundai Elantra.”

No injuries were reported.
