Baltimore, MD – Olympic gold medal winner, Michael Phelps was involved in a three-car accident yesterday in his hometown of Baltimore at around 9:00 PM.

Police say Phelps was not at fault for the accident.

Police reported that a Honda ran a red light and struck Phelps’ Cadillac Escalade, before bouncing off and hitting a parked car.

Witnesses on the scene reported that the two cars collided after someone ran a stoplight and then hit a third car that was not moving at the time.

Law enforcement also said Phelps was definitely not drunk at the time of the crash.

A police spokesman told TMZ “If he was impaired, you can bet your bottom dollar he would’ve been taken in. We don’t tolerate that.”

WJZ13 shot footage of Phelps inside an ambulance giving his official statement to police who said that he was “very respectful of the process.”

One of the local papers reported that a passenger in Phelps’ car was also injured, but it’s unclear as to the extent of that person’s injuries.

A tow-truck was on the scene removing Phelps’ ride. Michael’s car received “heavy damage.”
