Michael Phelps Not Hurt After Car Wreck
Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps looks to have escaped harms way when he was involved in a car crash last night in his hometown of Baltimore, MD.
A police spokesman says the swimmer was driving a Cadillac Escalade, which collided with a Honda accord. It is unclear who is at fault in the accident, but some reports are claiming that Phelps ran the red light, causing the crash.
Cops also said that after interviewing Phelps after the accident, they determined that a field sobriety test was not necessary. “There was no need,” said chief department spokesman Anthony Guglielmi. “He was completely coherent. He was cooperating with police. He gave a witness statement as to what occurred.”
Phelps had two passengers in his car, who were uninjured. The female driver of the second car was taken to the hospital as a precaution.
As of now, no citations have been issued and the accident is still under investigation.
