Dick Van Dyke Saved From Burning Car On Los Angeles Freeway


Dick Van Dyke just got lucky that he did not get burned inside his car.  Dyke’s white Jaguar had some engine trouble and turned into flames.  His wife tweeted, “He’s fine thank God!!”  The star of “The Dick Van Dyke Show,” later narrated, “It just started making a noise. I thought I had a flat at first, then it started smoking, then it burned to a crisp.  It was scary.”

The TV icon also revealed that he was so lucky that there were a fireman, a cop and a nurse who helped him.  The person who helped the actor thought that he was disoriented.  Van Dyke said,”He thought I had fainted…He thought I was passed out, so he yanked me. Very exciting!”


According to the spokesperson of the California Highway Patrol, “He was able-bodied at the scene. He was able to get out of the car himself.”

After the incident, Van Dyke said, “Somebody’s looking after me.”
