At around 9pm local time, Michael Phelps was involved in a car crash in his home town of Baltimore, MD.
Sources told PerezHilton.com that Phelps was speeding, ran a red light and smashed his Cadillac Escalade into a Honda Accord which then hit a parked car. Phelps didn’t appear to be injured in the crash and was seen talking to police near the scene of the accident. One woman has been taken to hospital with minor injuries.
Of course, when a car wreck happens, especially in a city, people gather around to rubberneck and when the onlookers realized who it was, they started snapping photos with their cellphones. That’s when Phelps started getting irate and began yelling at the photogs to delete the photos.
Olympic Gold Medallist Michael Phelps, a swimmer, has been in the news before after scandalous photos of him appeared online smoking from a bong. No word yet on whether Phelps was impared at the time of the car wreck.
