Michael Phelps

Involved in

Three Car Smash Up

8/13/2009 11:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael PhelpsUPDATE: Cops tell TMZ alcohol was NOT a factor in the crash. We're told cops interviewed Phelps after the accident and determined that a field sobriety test was not necessary.

We're told Michael refused medical treatment and left in a "personal vehicle."

Michael Phelps
was just involved in a three-car accident in his hometown of Baltimore.

Phelps reportedly emerged from the wreck unscathed, but a woman in the other car was shaken up and taken to a local hospital. We're told she complained of "head and arm pain."

The accident occurred around 9pm local time.

A police spokesman says the Olympic Gold Medal winner was driving a Cadillac Escalade, which collided with a Honda accord.

We're told by witnesses on the scene -- the two cars collided after someone ran a stoplight -- and then hit a third car that was not moving at the time.

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

We're told there is already a tow-truck on scene removing Phelps' ride. We're told Michael's car received "heavy damage."

Of course she was shaken up and taken to a hospital! Someone whispered in her ear that there could be a big payday for this accident.

Daddy wants some of the pie too.    

If you're reading this ma'am contact me. We'll file for 2 mill and settle for 1 mill. There will then, of course, be what you get when you write your book and get TV interview spots. I won't plant the bong and pot in his Escalade until after you sign our ummmm "agreement". You better let the doctor know about the intense pain you have in your neck--know what I mean? Get your hair done and buy some new clothes so you'll be presentable when the paps from TMZ swarm you. If everything works out you may be able to get your own Reality show.
Umm, if this was a "three-car accident" why is TMZ only reporting the woman in "the other car"? Should be 2 other cars. Great staff--can't even count to 3.
