Michael Phelps walked away uninjured Thursday night in downtown Baltimore after being behind the wheel of a late-model Cadillac Escalade when it collided with a Honda Accord that a woman was driving, say reports.

Police told the Baltimore Sun that besides Phelps's SUV, the Accord and a parked vehicle were seriously damaged during the 9 p.m. incident.

The female driver was described as "shaken up" and reportedly taken to a local hospital as a precaution. Police are said to have quizzed Phelps on what occurred. Alcohol was not a factor, according to news reports.

Phelps, 24, holds the Olympic record with 14 gold medals for swimming. In 2004, shortly after winning six gold medals at the Athens Olympics, he was pulled over by police after running a stop sign. He subsequently pleaded guilty to driving while impaired and was sentenced to 18 months' probation.
