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."

I'm glad that he is ok. He's a nice kid and doesn't get the honor or respect of a great athlete. He made one mistake and everyone jumped all over him. We've all done stupid things in the past. Forgive and FORGET! I hope he picks up some more endorsements while everyone still has him in their minds. We honor and respect people like Chris Brown and Michael Vicks who have hurt others. He only hurt himself.

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.

We all know there are three kinds of people in this world. Those who can count and those who can't.
