BALTIMORE — Baltimore police say Olympic gold medal-winning swimmer Michael Phelps has been in a two-car collision but not injured.

Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi says Phelps was driving a late-model Cadillac Escalade on Thursday night when it and a Honda Accord collided at an intersection near downtown Baltimore.

Guglielmi says the female driver of the Accord was "shaken up" and taken to a local hospital as a precaution.

He says two passengers in Phelps’ car were not injured.

Guglielmi says Phelps has been interviewed by police and alcohol was not a factor.

Phelps won eight gold medals at the Beijing Olympics.

At the scene, a black SUV with a crumpled hood was on a tow truck. The gray Accord had considerable damage on the front driver side.

Quarterback Michael Vick has signed a two-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles, his agent, Joel Segal, confirmed to ESPN.com.

Vick was the No. 1 draft pick in 2001, and once the highest-paid player in football. But he has not played since 2006 when his career came tumbling down. He was convicted in August 2007 of conspiracy and running a dogfighting operation, sentenced to 23 months in federal prison and suspended indefinitely by the NFL.

But after serving his time and being released from home confinement July 20, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell conditionally lifted Vick’s suspension, allowing him to sign with a team.
