Michael Phelps in Baltimore Car Crash

Our favorite swimmer Michael Phelps was not injured tonight when his SUV collided with another car in Baltimore, MD. Police said the Olympic gold medalist was not injured, so we’re hoping they’re right.

The other driver, a female in a Honda Accord was “shaken up” and is currently at a local hospital as a precaution. Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said that the two passengers in Phelps’ Cadillac Escalade were not injured.

According to the police, alcohol was not an issue, and although the accident is being investigated, no citations have been issued.

Unfortunately, Phelps’ driving record isn’t as awesome as his swimming resume. In 2004, the swim star pleaded guilty to driving while impaired shortly after he won six golds and two bronzes at the 2004 Athens Olympics. At the time, Phelps was sentenced to 18 months’ probation. It seems though that this recent accident was just that… An accident.
