Around 9 p.m. Thursday night, Olympic gold medalist swimmer Michael Phelps has been involved in a two-car accident in Baltimore.
Phelps was driving a black Cadillac Escalade. His SUV collided with a woman in a Honda Accord which hit a parked car. It is being reported that one of the drivers ran a red light causing the accident.
WJZ reports:
"At this we don't know, we know that there was a collision. Two cars were driving they collided at an intersection. We're going to find out, you know if alcohol was a factor, we're going to look at red lights. We're going to put all that together and like I said AIU (the Accident Investigation Unit) is literally is talking to them as we speak," said Guglielmi.
The woman was taken to hospital for what appeared to be minor injuries reports WBALTV. According to TMZ the woman had "head and arm pain."
It is not believed that the swimmer was injured in the wreck. He went home after spoking to police at the scene. The police contend that alcohol was not a factor and that Phelps was not given a breathalyzer test at the scene.
TMZ reports that Phelp's passenger was also injured but it is uncertain to what extend those injuries are.
Phelp's car is said to have suffered 'heavy damage.'
