Olympic gold medal swimmer Michael Phelps was uninjured after the car he was driving collided with another vehicle in Baltimore on Thursday night, police said.
The female driver of a Honda Accord was “shaken up” and taken to a local hospital as a precaution, police said. Two passengers in Phelps’ Cadillac Escalade were not injured, said police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi.
Guglielmi says Phelps has been interviewed by police and alcohol was not a factor. No charges were made and the accident was being investigated, with a report perhaps available Friday, Guglielmi said.
Phelps won eight gold medals at the Beijing Olympics. Phelps’ SUV had a crumpled hood and was on a tow truck. The gray Accord had considerable damage on the front driver side.
Most recently Phelps earned five golds and a silver over eight days at the World Swimming Championships earlier this month.
