Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps got into a car accident in Baltimore on Thursday night after colliding with another car in an intersection around 9 pm. While the swimmer and his two passengers were uninjured, the female driver of the second car was taken to the hospital as a precaution.

While the investigation is ongoing, alcohol- at least on Phelps’ part- is not thought to be a factor. Though he was questioned at the scene, Phelps was not given a field sobriety test.
