Swimmer Michael Phelps Gets In Minor Car Crash
An accident Thursday night that involved Olympic swimming star Michael Phelps was caused when the female driver of a Honda Accord sped through a red light and hit a Cadillac Escalade driven by Phelps at a Mid-Town Belvedere intersection, according to Baltimore police.
It was not clear whether the woman, whom police have not named, would be charged with any traffic offenses. She suffered minor injuries and was treated and released from Maryland Shock Trauma Center. Phelps and his two passengers were not hurt, police said.
The department’s chief spokesman, Anthony Guglielmi, said the official report is not ready to be made public, but he said investigators have concluded that the woman was driving north on Calvert Street, went through a red light and hit Phelps’ vehicle, which he was driving east on Biddle Street.
