Dick Van Dyke was not injured Monday when his Jaguar began to smoke and it eventually exploded on a Los Angeles-area freeway, according to his rep. The 87-year-old actor was driving to the dentist just prior to the incident.
The rep explains, "He was leaning over to get something out of the glove compartment when the car started smoking."
Luckily, there was a fire truck and ambulance nearby and first responders were able to assist him in getting out of the car quickly, according to the spokesperson. His rep added, "The car exploded after."
Van Dyke's longtime publicist Bob Palmer says, "Dick was in Calabasas on the 101 and the car got on fire and he got out.... after he got out the engine exploded and he is okay."
Van Dyke's wife Arlene tweeted a video of the wreck and wrote, "Van Dyke’s melted car… He’s fine thank God!!"
Van Dyke says he received help at the scene from "a fireman and a nurse and a cop who just happened to be passing by."
