(Newser) – Michael Phelps was uninjured after the car he was driving collided with another vehicle in Baltimore tonight. The female driver of a Honda Accord was "shaken up" and taken to a hospital as a precaution. Two passengers in Phelps' Cadillac Escalade were unhurt. A police spokesman says Phelps has been interviewed and alcohol was not a factor. No charges were filed, and the accident was under investigation. Phelps' SUV had a crumpled hood, while the Accord had considerable damage on the front driver side. .
